Helo python-dev.

Please take a look at http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Cookbook/Python/Recipe/276960

This recipe proposes an alternative syntax for sequential data processing functions, that reflects unix shell pipe syntax. Here is an example:

bash_users = ( file('/etc/passwd') | grep('/bin/bash') | aslist )

I don't know if this idea was already explored before; hope this can be useful. For details and sample code please see link above.
