It turns out that in 2.2, we have a regression 8 mos old.  Unfortunately
we didn't pick up on it, because piped logs aren't something that the
perl-framework understands.

The crux of the problem is that we create processes without a full host
of three fd's.  Then we inflict them against sh.  Linux/bash doesn't seem
to mind, but solaris sh, and I'm guessing aix and hpux stock /bin/sh are
not going to like this situation either.  Obviously win32 minded, but this
is an artifact of how we assembled things.

We need three fd's to each logger process, but it's not as simple as that.
We've collectively tacked on so much bubblegum and bailing wire trying to
make the piped logger behave that it's missing any sensibility :)  I'm
trying to restore that back to a working state.

I'd be +1 to releasing 2.2.6 today if we simply wanted to back out the
entire pile of cruft added since we started invoking /bin/sh to launch
log pipes.  Till it behaves sensibly, I'll be -1 on release.
