This comment is confusing, since you say we don't use nonblocking and
then immediately set our side of stderr to nonblocking.  Maybe you meant
to say that we leave helper's stdin or stdout alone (default blocking)
because they are not tied to our event loop, but set our side of stderr
to be nonblocking so we can read it from our event loop.

ACK once you fix up that comment.
