Surely the same is true of the so/DLL loading functions?
The difference is that with these functions you can load any other
non-portable function that you need (such as popen). They provide a
minimum non-portable functionallity we need to load all others.
Is there a clean way of creating new handles that'll work with the other
functions in the io library, such that one could write an extension and put it
in such a library? If so, where is it documented? (A quick skim of the
manual doesn't seem to mention anything useful on the subject.)
