I use it for quick and dirty stuff all the time, mainly because what I want
is often something that can be broken down into stages of processing, and
pure functions are really nice for that.
If I know the input is coming from a reliable enough stream (like a unix
pipe to stdin) I can use functions like "interact" to create filters, or
parse some input, and produce some output.
It's pretty nice.
