"Plumbing is a new mechanism for inter-process communication in Plan 9,
specifically the passing of messages between interactive programs as part of
the user interface. Although plumbing shares some properties with familiar
notions such as cut and paste, it offers a more general data exchange
mechanism without imposing a particular user interface."
