shell-like pipelines in lua

Norman Ramsey-3
Lua's builtins include something like the ANSI C system() call for
executing another function.  Has anybody extended this to make
it possible to build and execute pipelines?  I would be especially interested
if such support used real pipelines on Unix and faked it on DOS using 
whatever the approved mechanism is (temporary files?).
