It is not very abstract. It is the central idea in Unix world:

        This is the Unix philosophy: Write programs that do one
        thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write
        programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal
        interface. (Doug Mcllroy).

and you can see an example of it in sam editor.

You should avoid words as 'stupid', if you don't want to convert
this in something personal. If you don't agree with an idea,
please indicate the technical reasons, or in other case shut up.
