Yes,  but  all  the platform-specific pipe.inc files
and pipes.pp will have to be changed anyway  because
the  CreatePipeHandles  will have a different proto-
type. I wasn't sure if it  would  be  OK  to  add  a
parameter  to  the  definition  of  a cross-platform
function that would be used only on one one platform
and ignored on all the other ones.

I will write a patch then.
