I'm working on generalising my solaris 256 FILE * thing which uses F_DUPFD
to achieve this.  But I'm going to need to add a function or two to the
api and so it may not be a 1.2.1 thing.  I'm going to roll it in with a
performance improvement -- use poll() and/or ioctl(TIOCINQ) (or FIONREAD)
when doing saferead since it only needs to test one descriptor.
