Oh, yea, "|" should work fine because it uses the shell.  pipe manual
page says:

     The popen() function ``opens'' a process by creating an IPC connection,
     forking, and invoking the shell.


     The command argument is a pointer to a null-terminated string containing
     a shell command line.  This command is passed to /bin/sh using the -c
     flag; interpretation, if any, is performed by the shell.

so we are find with pipe already.
