Indeed it does. Actually most of the code was written using the current released 
version, I just jumped the gun a bit when I saw how nice the new interface was.

I'm hoping that the release of the new process library (GHC ticket #2233) isn't 
that far off, which is why I figured I'd shove Pipe out in this state. If that's 
not the case and it turns out that people want to use Pipe without the hassle, I 
might be persuaded to release a version that doesn't need it.

The only 'real' dependency that can't be worked around is the handlePipe 
function, which is only a non-exported optimization that gets applied via RULES.
