This sounds interesting to me. It's a reminiscent of the notebook
environments (think jupyter) in the sense that at any time you can
access previous results.

(but wouldn't preserve the consistency, AFAIU, i.e. if you re-run a
previous command, it wouldn't affect later command's output (which may
be desirable or not))

I wouldn't use this as my regular shell, I guess, but I imagine it fits
quite well specific sessions where I experiment with building a
processing pipeline: It would automate the saving of intermediate

unfortunately no.
