Obviously I didn't review this as carefully as I should have.  That's on
me.  I apologize.

I believe that we already have a proper abstraction for what's going on
here: a latch.  The latch implementation also hides differences between
Unix and Windows (which this inline implementation isn't doing).  Would
you mind making this use latch.h instead of raw pipes?

Would you mind breaking the style issues into a separate commit?
