A while ago I did write a PipeIO class which subclasses io.RawIOBase and works for overlapped pipe handles.  (It was intended for multiprocessing and doing asynchronous IO with subprocess.)

As it is it would not work with normal files because when you do overlapped IO on files you must manually track the file position.

What are the expected benefits?

Isn't O_NOINHERIT the Windows equivalent of O_CLOEXEC?
