A unix domain socket used on stdin/stdout works with non-cygwin

It would really help if you provided an actual use case which
demonstrated what you are talking about.  Otherwise, you seem to be
asking that we just trust you that brltty is different from most other
packages in the distribution and deserves special dispensation.

I'm not willing to offer that dispensation unless you can adequately
describe why it is needed.  That will require that you explain how
the non-cygwin applications interact with brltty in such a way that
linux solutions are not acceptable.  Repeating that cygwin doesn't
interact with non-cygwin applications is not the way to get your
point across since that assertion is obviously false.
