How can I make apgsearch(python or compiled) make the 'stdin' soups? (e.g. 4g)

To clarify, as long as the symmetry is not recognized, the program will read RLEs from stdin instead of generating soups from SHA of a random seed, is that right? Does the symmetry have to end with 'stdin'?
There's a new draft of a tutorial about stdin symmetry
on LifeWiki now. If any regular users of apgluxe's stdin functionality want to look it over and clarify anything I said that was wrong, confusing, or downright silly, that would be a Good Thing.
The tutorial doesn't entirely answer the question about re-creating the 4g soups. I think there's a brief walkthrough of that -- piping the output of a program into apgluxe, rather than piping the contents of a text file into it -- at this link that I gave before
However, the tutorial does document the steps I had to go through to make my own custom "stdin" symmetry to census all 455,380 collisions in the octohash database. It seemed very straightforward, so I hope I've successfully explained how to do this kind of thing for similar census projects.
(As far as the octohash database census results go, I don't think anything particularly exciting showed up; I only checked the biggest 19-bit and 20-bit still lifes that appeared, and they certainly aren't going to set any records for a synthesis of those objects. The sample results are all posted at the bottom of the tutorial if anyone wants to look through them.)
