Planning starts...

Yesterday I planned to start a Monad implementation for the Gnome/Mono environment, called 'GOSH'. Currently it is a development codename. This project is in it infancies... any help would be appreciated. So what I would like it to become is easy: codename Monad, a powerful shell in which objectstreams are piped instead of the textual UN*X pipelines (for sed and awk). Some questions I will investigate are: Should this technology be compatible with PowerShell? How can we encapsulate the traditional pipelines to also be able to reuse some very powerful existing scripts/oneliners? Please feel free to connect me at ' gnome.osh @'. A project space has been opened at Google's code hosting, called gnome-osh.
