I completely agree.  It was done this way because it was all OtherBill and I could
get Ryan to agree to after a lengthy debate on new-httpd.

What *I* wanted to do was to make split a native function of sockets and pipes that
just happened to be a little overloaded.   (See my original posting and the ensuing
debate in the thread "Implementing split() on pipe buckets?", beginning 11/12.)

The short-short version is that I wanted to change pipe_read() to pipe_readn(), a
function that obeys the len parameter.  pipe_split() would pass in point as the
length to read, pipe_read() would pass in IOBUFSIZE.  It was fairly straightforward.
 Ryan disliked it because it cluttered the buckets code with "non-atomic"
operations.  Personally, I couldn't see why the read() function was allowed to be
non-atomic but the split() function was not.  But whatever.  I'll let you do the
arguing this time.  =-)
