This has great potential. It can simplify the terminal program while being very unixy.

Here are some ideas for filters/transformers:

- Unicode input: like composition key in the linux terminal or Xorg.
- Lock: asks for password when locked, behaves like cat otherwise.
- Macro: allows recording and replaying key sequences.
- Keybinding: allows configuring key sequences to launch programs.
- Color remover: doesn't forward escape sequences that change color.
- Clipboard: allows copying and pasting.
- Status bar: takes over a line of the terminal, showing system status.
