Yeah, I keep thinking CE, where they *are* global.

There may be other ways to identify the pipes, like using
named pipes for the ttys if possible -- but I don't know if
it's possible to get a pipe name from a pipe handle.  If
there's a way to know if two handles point to the same
object it should work too, but I don't think that's possible either...
