Actually... wouldn't it make more sense to call the Cygwin pipe
pty%d-from-master / pty%d-to-slave
and the non-Cygwin one something like
pty%d-from-master-nat / pty%d-to-slave-nat
After all, Cygwin is the norm, and non-Cygwin is the exception.
On second thought, this would also make sense for thr fhandler methods,
get_output_handle / get_output_handle_cyg
get_output_handle_nat / get_output_handle
Probably the fhandler stuff is too much renaming for this release,
but we should do this for the next one, I think.
