What Unix philosophy or religion? The whole 'one tool does one thing' is
not what Unix has ever been.. it is a rosy glasses view forgetting all the
arguments over whether awk+sed+sh or sh+sed+awk or special program G was
the best way to solve a problem. Which gets down to the fundamental issue.
Humans are not lock step creatures.. they will think differently and see
different ways to solve a problem and the universe is complex enough that
it works so much that people get frustrated with each other because they
would like just one way to do things (their way).
