in thread How to pass AnyEvent socket handle to pre-forked child process?
Actually, you can pass filehandles between processes, it's just not something that solves many problems, and there usually are better ways to accomplish the same, as you outlined already. :-)
PPerl has code for passing around filehandles in pass_fd.c, and I wrote a replacement for that for Win32, but can't find it on RT. Maybe I forgot to open a bug for it.
This approach still leaves systems not so close to Unix in the rain of course, so your better, and common, approach of using accept still stands.
