I'm not sure I follow. Are you saying Windows users would never want to access Subversion repositories? Thanks, Jonathan
Quite the contrary. SVN and git both work on Windows without having POSIX FIFOs - Windows does have FIFOS, but the semantics are different than POSIX and this is why Cygwin's do not work as needed. There is no problem having a subprocess with stdin and stdout redirected via anonymous pipes to the parent: this is how git runs sub commands and works fine. I'm just questioning why this same construct cannot be used for the test harness.
