Since Unix has been doing coarse-grained dataflow for decades, if it
hasn't conquered the undistributed world, it's unlikely to conquer
the distributed world either.   <rant>It's just amazing to me how many
Unix applications are written in purely monolithic style, not even
bothering to exploit the hundreds of dataflow objects (aka tools)
