killing process spawned with sys:open-pipe

Has anyone a way to kill a process that was spawned using
sys:open-pipe? System-dependent solutions are OK; I'd be looking for
OS X and Windows solutions, specifically. I know that inspecting the
pipe-stream returned by open-pipe will disclose the pid (on OS X)
which could, I suppose be the argument to a kill via call-system,
though this seems slightly awkward, and HProcess and HThread (on
Windows), but I'm not quite sure what I could do with those yet (I
don't do much in the Windows arena), but there's probably ample
documentation out there. I was just wondering if anyone had already
tackled this problem, or knew of a solution. Thanks in advance!
