It doesn't work.  When I start dash and echo something into cat
through a pipe, it shows up on the screen but the command doesn't
return.  Unrelated to this, pressing ctrl-C in dash leads to a seg

tbm at juist:~/src/klibc-1.3.21$ ./usr/dash/sh
$ echo foo | cat

[Ctrl-C pressed]
Segmentation fault

Another problem:

tbm at juist:~/src/klibc-1.3.21$ ./usr/dash/sh
$ echo foo | cat | cat
cat: -: Bad file descriptor
cat: closing standard input: Bad file descriptor

Segmentation fault
tbm at juist:~/src/klibc-1.3.21$
