 I forgot to mention: .NET's Process.StandardInput/Output/Error
 are async.

+This will likely introduce some nasty side effects into Mono.
+It will use the easy-to-saturate (and hence deadlock) thread pool, it
+will also bring all the slowness associated with using a separate
+thread to get the job done and the synchornization required to get the
+data back and forth.
+I would rather have us implement a custom Unix Async stream that will
+not use the threadpool for the console.
