Argument list handling fixed in commit
397baf232086e0a9ad6f881a9614d3dbaea853fc.  That readpipe() is not a
list operator is not a bug: it's documented to take a single expression,
and most of the internals thought it was a unary operator.  If you want a
list version of readpipe(), that would be a feature request that should be
raised separately.  It would probably be a bad idea to turn the existing
readpipe() into a list operator: the list version should be distinct.
