Well, to split hairs here, and hair splitting seems to be in vogue right
now, that's still I/O redirection.  The pipe itself is still writing to
STDIN even though STDIN is being redirected to FD 3.  

Now if the pipe had a syntax such as 1|3 or even 2|3 (output from STDERR
piped to FD 3), then I'd agree that the syntax for _pipe_ allowed it to use
other file handles than STDLIST and STDIN.
