I'm coming around on this if we move the execution of the pipe into a
thread. With the new thread infstrastructure, that should be mostly
straight-forward and get us around all the blocking problems.
Actually, I'm wondering if non-packet IOSources should generally move
into threads (e.g., the DNS Mgr).
