    Dunno, maybe. But I reason that if there are no IO layers associated with the file descriptor, there is no chance that they are interfering in any way.

    I have to admit to being quite sceptical about the benefits of Perl's IO layers. Just seems to be another few layers of indirection between me and my data.
