I actually think Piper will require many user interfaces, since users will be
doing things so different with it. For example, you can use Piper just to
replace the pipes on the command-line (for non-technical users), while you can
use it to do distributed parallel calculations for [signal
processing/bioinformatics/artificial intelligence], or for fast real-time sound
effect processing. I don't think one (or even a few) UI can fit all needs.
