[fpc-pascal] fcl-process, SimpleIPC and pipes

I must implement communication between 2 processes.
I believe SimpleIPC is good for that purpose and it is well tested in
a cross-platform system (Lazarus <-> ChmHelp).

Named pipes were suggested to me. I would like to know the benefits /
handicaps of SimpleIPC compared to named pipes. I will have to answer
such questions myself soon.

fcl-process also has pipes unit and then "pipesipc" which apparently
does not use pipes. (?)
