+[[!meta title="The New Command Line Manifesto"]]
+Idea: let all new commands to support also machine-readable
+formats as inputs and outputs.
+This, along with UNIX pipes and daemon interfacing, brings CLI
+to a new era of services that are:
+* Still based on small programs that do one thing but one thing right.
+* But also are capable of interacting with each other in an uniform way.
+So let them support parameters like `--json` and `--yaml` for it's I/O.
+In other words, with parsers and serializers it's possible to keep an
+ecosystem of UNIX microservices interacting with each other using a
+consistent API.
