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.)
