	You've already got some references, you can also look at 
http://hackage.haskell.org/package/scc which includes a shell language.

	I do.

	It would be interesting to compare the speed of your Bash functions 
with the h4sh executables written in Haskell. Your solution has the 
source platform independence on its side, of course.

	A question of my own: is there any written design (an academic paper 
would be perfect) of a functional shell language?
