Sorry. Why don't you agree ? The open file tdb is a critical
choke point for file access. Contention there slows down the
whole system. Adding pipe opens increases the contention. This
is the kind of thing that only hurts on heavily loaded systems,
but when it huts it *really* hurts.

Do you have numbers showing otherwise ? Let's get agreement
on this first before we decide where to put the needed data.
