Think again. You'd still have to install a server somewhere, and that's
exactly what people want to avoid. Besides, named pipes perform very
badly under heavy loads or large transfers, tending to loose data.

Not to mention that SMB runs over TCP/IP sockets (ports 138 and 139) and
so do named pipes.
