Someone here said it didn't work on windows, but I think that's fixed in
the mean time. Linux should work, further I didn't test.

Only fpAccept exists inside of custfcgi.pp which tries to accept connection from StdInputHandle, and this looks somehow cryptic to me. But maybe I am missing something?

Fcgi indeed uses sockets for the communication with the web-server, but
for convenience stdin is used. For a real explanation see here:
