I forgot how the layers go.

Maybe `process' from `(lib "process.ss")' will be easier to use, since
it handles arbitrary ports.

Or create a thread to copy the subprocess stdout to a pipe while you

 (thread (lambda ()
           (copy-port stdout-in pipe-out)
           (close-output-port pipe-out)))
