Because it can lead to deadlocks. When process A waits for process B and
process B waits for process A to put something onto the pipe, both
processes will block.
Besides, such cycles in the data flow graph between processes can normally
be avoided. If the contents of either pipe can be determined a priori,
then use a file.

Furthermore, I can't implement it for the OS/2 version of CLISP, only for
