Linux uses /proc/self/fd/*.
I thought about two alternatives. One would be to extend the current
"-" for standard input so that:
- is standard input
-0 is standard input as well
-5 is fd 5
and so on. But I think this is a bit counterintuitive, so I think my
personal preference would be for the --input-fd option.
