fileno conforms to SUS v2 which itself claims "Derived from Issue 1 of
the SVID" - whatever that is.

In any case when you have no need for buggy stdio, and in any case when
you don't putc() everything, i. e. you have buffers. Using UNIX-level
I/O will save some overhead.
I'll postpone looking into a different buffer scheme (which may involve
ripping Postfix' out) until after the 2.0b9 release to get the old bugs
bashed out before introducing new ones in the switch.
