That would be better than now, but taking a step back, why are we using
a named fifo at all?  Why not simply use a pipe?  Then we wouldn't have
to worry about all this after-you-Alphonse business.  Children could
write to the pipe when they're done.  The parent could read from the pipe
to find out when a child died.
