Well at the very least, allowing Iron Python
Applications to be compatible with that pipeline would
seem like a good idea.

Well, Perl has had libraries that give Perl the
equivalent functionality of the Unix Shell.
I've never regretted it when I chose perl or python
over the shell when writing a script over a few
lines. The main thing that is a key though: once you
learn a shell, sometimes you know how to do something
in it _very_ tersely-so having equivalent commands in
libraries in a "real" language can be quite handy-if
only as a memory device.

It seems like the first is something Iron python can
borrow-possibly parts of the second and the third
something iron python can fix.
This may be a way to do an end run around msh.
