Yes, or something like 9P. (Beat you to it, Uriel!)

Does anyone nowadays still remember the lessons of the structured
programming paradigm that preceded OOD? It's amazing how well the Unix

decoupling, cohesion, etc. The OO stuff *tries* to achieve the same
virtuosity, but doesn't succeed nearly as well.
