What you're asking is possible. The number of input and output pipes has to
be known at invocation because the pipes are connected before any tasks are
run, but if it's a parameter passed to the task, then the task can report to
the pipeline manager how many output pipes it has. The tricky part might be
connecting the downstream tasks. It might be confusing because of the
stack-based pipeline ordering.
