It would seem to me that having stdin sent to a process of your choice is definitely more "erlangy" than doing file:reads (if there was some back pressure). But using open_port still seems a little bit dirty to me... :-) It might be a bit difficult to explain to a newbie and also has the added disadvantage of using extra command line options (-user as in Ulfs example at the shootout).
