Battling the antibodies

For the record, I completely agree Jon Udell, both in regarding Monad (aka MSH) as a brilliant piece of work, and as having spent a fair amount of time battling antibodies myself. Episodes I remember:

Jeffrey Snover's Monad is a brilliant piece of work (wish this guy had a website). It really does capture the strength of shell scripting in Unix, and takes things to a whole new level.

Doubtless the Unix folks can and will replicate this new abstraction in shell scripting, but in this case someone at Microsoft got there first.
