get_osfhandle() takes a Windows file handle (HANDLE as returned by
CreateFile) and returns a small int you can use with read, write, close,
setmode() lets you set the default file opening more: either TEXT
(with LF -> CR/LF conversion) or BINARY (no conversion).
I can see how get_osfhandle() can be useful for interoperability in
Cygwin. setmode() seems of a more dubious value though (especially since
it means they must have implemented the awful CR/LF conversion across
their C library API (unless setmode() is nothing but a stub)).
