... the only problem being that also pipe is a noun, it does not mean 
"somebody who makes pipelines". Currently, generator is "somebody who 
generates", transformer is "somebody who transforms", etc.

But "pipe" noun does not describe an actor, "pipe" is passive... "Piper" 
could be better but it means "somebody who plays pipe"...
