Sigh. I tried to set this up (using a little external C routine to do
the API grunt work) and it doesn't seem to work as I expect. Maybe the
C/GHC runtimes do something more complex than just using the API
standard handles, maybe I coded something wrong.

In theory, this should work. In practice, Haskell may benefit from an
equivalent of the C freopen() function (from stdio), which deals
correctly with the internals of handles...
