Writing is ok as long as you call flush() on the text layer when necessary. Reading is not since there's no official way to flush the input buffer on the text layer (assuming some input has been consumed, that is). detach() doesn't do anything special AFAIR.

(this is all funny in the light of the web-sig discussion where people explain that CGI is such a natural model)
