Support for pipes has been removed because it's not ANSI. (See recent reports
on problems with popen and pclose.) The natural place for pipes is the POSIX
library, which perhaps we should add to the standard distribution.
You'll probably find some other things missing, such as lua_dostring, but
please remember that Lua evolves by removing things not by adding them! Up
to now, this has been a Good Thing (TM).
