Indeed the code I submitted can be written entirely in C using pipe fork execl dup2 etc. as you suggest. The only purpose of mixing bash and C is to have a short self-contained file showing the problem.

Anyway, whether in C or bash the workaround is less than satisfying in that it uses up fds 0 1 2, and I have exactly the same goal and constraints as you.

Finally, thanks for identifying the limitation in the python implementation and submitting a patch. Like you I hope it will be eventually applied.
