I'm sorry for the confusion here, it turns out I was misinterpreting the results of my program and my workaround was not working. Like others have said, the subprocess code seems to rely on the existence of file descriptors

I would be pretty partial to the idea of having the subprocess's internal code catch OSError and raise a clearer error message like "subprocess can only operate on files with file descriptor support".

Having "complete" file object support would seem like a major win, but looking at the internals/OS support it seems like a hard thing to set up.
