This does not enable you to set any particular options on the  
descriptors though, and I'm not aware of any supported way for doing  
so (read: a way which is likely to be forward compatible). And even if  
you could get at the file descriptors, there is also no cross-platform  
functionality that I'm aware of to change their (non-)blocking setting.
