"Let's all write parsers."

Hickey kicks unix because although pipes = composability, output and
input = free-form text. We combined data exchange with user interface,
and user interface usually won that fight.

Say data exchange won; would it help us to rewrite our programs to
output JSON and our shells to pretty-print* JSON?

their pretty-printers.
