I strongly disagree. According to your logic nothing can legitimately read or
write a FIFO because it's every reader/writer's responsbility for the other end
of the pipe? You've just pronounced FIFOs unuseable by *anybody*?

In fact, I use Expect to drive sftp and I set my own criteria for timing out the
operation. Why is this a bad solution? If you're concerned someone will use a
FIFO without understanding what the ramifications are, why not default it to
non-support and allow users to pass a parm enabling the support?
