Of course I have, and I understand the workaround. What I don't
understand is why the pipefs technique (for which you had working code,
IIRC) wasn't used in the end. Was it the difficulty of changing cygtools
to use the new interface? The additional interface complexity?
Personally, I'd argue both are worth it.
