I haven't tried that yet, nor do I remember anything where I've already seen 
two processes writing to the same pipe.
At least it sounds cumbersome to me. Processes' lifetimes overlap, so buffering 
and flushing could mix data.
We have to use it for both purposes interchangably  because there can be more 
than one import command to the remote-helper, of course.

Will try that in test-program..
