Feature request: Unix sdtio pipe instead of file

Mabe this idea is totaly off the wall, but would it be possible to recode some things in blender so that it can receive a .blend file through a unix stdio pipe in the command line?

umm, why can't you just save the file or give blender the path to it?

Security, it would make it possible for a renderfarm deamon to decrypt a file, and load it into blender without it ever getting saved on the hard drive.

It would also allow you to do some fancy things with shell scripting.
