The reason, why I wrote the above is my experience with Cygwin32 from
a couple of years back. GPGME is heavily using pipes for IPC and I
recall to had problems creating more than 5 or so pipes within the
cygwin32 environment. Other than that Cygwin is pretty much POSIX and
thus it should pe possible to run gnupg 2 on it.

You mean to cygwin? That's great.
I have a hack in mind to implement funopen on other systems using
a pipe and a separate thread. But well, there are other things to do

There used to be a small test program somewhere but I can't find it
right now. You may want to enhance the gnupg/tests/asschk.c utility.
