You can use TCP for inter-process communication at the moment.

If you need NamedPipes, you need to implement IOCP polling mechanism 
first (select doesn't handle NamedPipes). Have a look at 
select_t/poll_t/epoll_t/devpoll_t/kqueue_t classes for example of how 
polling mechanism is to be implemented. Also check the mailing list 
archives for the discussions of IOCP.
