when faced with a similar problem for a pretty printer (epp_dodger 
wanting a file) i found that epp_dodger:parse/1 could handle an io 
object, instead of a file. so i wrote a string_io module that has 
open()/close() and received the io_requests. would this have worked for 
you? ie, can compile take an io object?
