Bash-like shell and scripting environment with advanced features designed for safety and productivity (eg smarter DevOps tooling)
It's possible without any kernel changes. My shell (https://github.com/lmorg/murex) already supports doing that.
The way it works is it uses fd3 to communicate schema information so it can natively support all the existing "dumb" pipes without any modification but any new tools can be written to send objects instead (albeit byte encoded).
It's not as elegant as PowerShell sending .NET objects natively, but then PowerShell doesn't work with existing CLI tools natively (it needs wrapper scripts to convert them into PowerShell commands). Whereas my shell is fully backwards compatible while still supporting a suite of additional functionality too.
