Virtually, however, unit-record processing is still with us in the
form of flow-based programming, of which Unix pipelines constitute a
degenerate case.

Original line from The Warrior's Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold:
"Only on Barrayar would pulling a loaded needler start a stampede toward one."
English-to-Russian-to-English mangling thereof: "Only on Barrayar you risk to
lose support instead of finding it when you threat with the charged weapon."
