Presently, it is Unix-only, though it likely would run fine under
Cygwin. I am not yet sure if the new System.Process is powerful
enough for this. Upon initial examination, I believe that it is not
because it lacks support for pipes.
I don't know how Windows shells deal with piping, or even if they
can. All I know is that DOS used to simulate it with temporary files,
lacking any real multitasking.
