That's too bad.  I see no reason to give up, and I urge you to
reconsider, please.

It isn't a church, but some kind of trust cannot harm.

It is indeed safe for Windows, because Emacs on Windows always uses
pipes (as PTYs are not available there).

My concern here is for systems other than Windows and other than those
where you saw the issue.

Your patch unconditionally assumes that every handler will immediately
exit, and that it doesn't care about the connection type with the
parent Emacs process, but that is not guaranteed to be true.  What I'm
asking is to let some kind of "fire escape" for users who could be
adversely affected by this assumption.  Ideally, some automatic
detection of the handlers that need pipes would be the best.  If that
is not feasible, at least an option to control process-connection-type
would be enough.

I explained the issue I have with unconditionally changing the
interface.  I have explained it above again.  I hope it is clear

Hmm... that's true.  So I guess an option to use PTYs should be good
enough here.

Great, thanks.  So I think it should be easy to adjust your patch to
have a variable that controls process-connection-type, and then it
could be installed.
