 AW:  XQuery frameworks

xmlsh seems to me a fascinating approach, and I wonder if the W3C has considered developing a related standard: If it has decided against it I would like to know the reasons. It is simply strange that we XML-minded people have on the one hand a deep conviction about the value of structured information; and on the other hand accept it meekly, day by day, that our workhorse - the unix shell - consumes and delivers lines of text only... that it delivers, say, the result of a find command in a pityfully unstructured way to be parsed... It is an anachronism.

The basic tools concept, as you explain it on the philosophy page of xmlsh, is convincing, and it is a background before which the worth of interoperability of "small programs" gets very clear. If one accepts the tools concept as a general idea, I think it is but a little step to the thought that the interoperability of XQuery queries may be an interesting issue. 

What concerns the interaction of queries in the context of xmlsh I have not yet quite understood what is supported or not (yet?) supported. Can one, for example, profit from pipes in order to link two queries? If you gave me a hint where to look, or said a few words in explanation, I would be grateful.

You might want to look at xmlsh which was designed to solve this problem of managing the efficient interactions of many xqueries (as well as may non-xquery XML and non-xml pieces of a larger integration),
although perhaps not in the way you express.
