I'd be delighted, but for a library I would prefer it be standard [and
documented!]. Team?

I will remove pipe, fdopen and dup from luaposix until there's a
proper way to implement them. Is there any need for LuaJIT to
implement fileno? The current luaposix implementation is:

static int Pfileno(lua_State *L)	/** fileno(filehandle) */
	FILE *f = *(FILE**) luaL_checkudata(L, 1, LUA_FILEHANDLE);
	return pushresult(L, fileno(f), NULL);

which works fine in LuaJIT 2.0.0-beta7:
