Ah, named pipes can be quite useful, mostly for one-off situations
where there's a better solution that just isn't in place yet. Note
that mknod is primarily for device files and doesn't actually support
the "p" type for named papes on all systems; if you find one where
"mknod blah p" doesn't work, try "mkfifo blah".
