The application probably cannot seek(2) a fish: stream, so if it needs
random access to the file, it probably won't work.

Also, I don't think this is a kernel-resident facility, so applications
presumably have to use a particular library or libraries for file
selection and access in order to get the intervention necessary to make
the transparent fish protocol work.

But that's just a hunch / guess.
