Wouldn't select on both fd's and reading from the first one available,
and then sending that to the buffer, work?  Perhaps if there is data
in both stdout and stderr, write the stderr data.  Surely there is
some similar logic somewhere in bash, the kernel or somewhere.

Requiring another script to be installed is not good, IMHO.  Can't the
script be simulated in elisp somehow?
