Yes, it's exactly that. Your advantage is that you don't
need to marshall anything on your own, and you don't have to
ask anybody for name space. Just invent a named pipe name,
run uuidgen and you're done with your local sandbox. In
theory you could even ride on one of the existing named
pipes, but this might be sub-obtimal.

Your disadvantage is that it has slightly higher processing
costs, and that you don't have the correct tid/fid context
