I'm using pipe_command() which is just convenience function setting
stdout=PIPE. Similarly feed_command() is just setting stdin=PIPE which I'm
not using because I'm feeding the stdout of the other process directly
(stdin=first_process.stdout). What I don't understand, regardless of using
stdin=PIPE or stdin=first_process.stdout for the second process, is what
should be next.
