Detailed Description

This pile of shit exists because PHP on Windows is broken, and can't handle stream_select() on stdin or pipes properly - stdin native triggers stream_select() when a key is pressed, causing it to get stuck in fgets() waiting for a line that might never come (and Windows doesn't support character-based reading either), and pipes just constantly trigger stream_select() instead of only when data is returned, rendering it useless.

This results in whichever process reads stdin getting stuck on shutdown, which previously forced us to kill the entire server process to make it go away.

To get around this problem, we delegate the responsibility of reading stdin to a subprocess, which we can then brutally murder when the server shuts down, without killing the entire server process. Thankfully, stream_select() actually works properly on sockets, so we can use them for inter-process communication.
