QLib and Pipes

Has anyone found a workaround for using named pipes in Q-Liberated programs?
The problem is that QLib uses its own idea of pipes, which overrides the named pipes provided for in SMSQ/E. Of course I could simply succumb and re-write my routine to do it the QLib way, but for various reasons this would, to use a technical term, be a bloody nuisance!

Actually, it could be trickier to work around than I first thought. It seems SMSQ/E's named pipes persist as long as one job still has an open channel to it. Apparently QLib's version does not. Im still on the case, but if anyone has a proper solution, please let me know!
