As far as I can tell, struct File in std.stdio does not have a direct way to
construct a File object from a low-level file descriptor, ā la fdopen.

I ran into this issue when using fork and pipe to create a pipe between two
processes; having started a child process I wanted to parse the child's
standard output using high-level File functions, and for that purpose I wanted
to create a File object from a file descriptor.

After some head-scratching, I was finally able to work around the issue by
extern-declaring fdopen and using the sparsely documented File.wrapFile
function (which is labelled "unsafe") to construct a File object, but that was
inconvenient and obscure.

Implementing fdopen in File would make systems programming with Phobos easier.

fdopen is declared in core\sys\posix\stdio.d

It seems there's at least one function which uses it:
D:\DMD\dmd2\src\phobos\std\stdio.d:2540:        FILE* fp = enforce(fdopen(s,
"w+".ptr));

Hope that helps in any way!
