Well, I actually believe we should design an OS here, not just a set of
independent tools. And that means I think closer integration is good and
only has benefits.
I agree you are trying to design a completely new OS here. I am not so
sure this OS will be better than any other fully integrated monolithic
OS. I originally did not want to write this, but it seems you are really
determined to break some of the basic and proven to be effective Unix
design philosophy rules to make the system from simple parts with
clearly defined interfaces and functionality.
No matter how far down the wrong road you've gone, turn back.
