I may, or may not, deliver the seeds of it to you this month, next month, sometime, never.
This feature is definitely NOT implemented in 1.0. (There are a lot more features in 1.0. :-) --CliffordAdams

The first form is the only form given in the documentation, as it is the easiest for a naive user to understand.

It's one of the things I really like about Unix, and it was so good that MSDOS adopted it right from the start. Some users would find it easier to run a series of pipes than to edit a file
Strictly speaking the scripts are "filters" and only the | are pipes; but PatchPipes? sounds nicer than PatchFilters?. Poetry trumps Pedantry. Besides, this way I get to run the joke about it not just being a pipe dream...
In both designs we say, the defaults work, we have tested likely combinations of options, and looking at the code we have no reason to expect problems.
