Sure there are other ways: you can store it in a variable, eg:

while :; do
   ps aux; netstat
   sleep 1
done | (
   while read -r x; do
     out="$(printf "%s%s\nX" "${out%X}" "$x")"
     if [ -e dump-output ]; then
       echo -n "${out%X}" >>dump-output
       echo "Buffer size: $(echo $out | wc -c)"

Uh, readonly /var isn't a supported configuration... Assuming you symlink
/var/lib/dpkg elsewhere, and don't fill up /var/cache/apt, it doesn't
seem like it'd need to be either?
