>>And having *everything* be an fd would finally realize one of the goals of the Unix world since its creation :) <<

Given that Plan9 has been much more thorough than Unix in the 'everything is a file' way, I wonder how they solved this issue?

Plan 9 has `notes' instead of signals, but it looks like they too were
`call this function automatically' things rather than being reified into
fds. Surprising. (However, notes are plan9ish in another way: they're
strings, not integers.)
