Idea for new shell script lang:

- Function call syntax, instead of parameter parsing, like `cat("hello.txt")`

- Support for complex types, so I can stop having to deal with Bash's arrays

- Transpile to POSIX to allow sourcing in Bash/Zsh

- Good flag parsing built in. No more weird Bash case statements at the end. With completion support!

- For loops on lines

- Easy multithread/-tasking

- Strongly typed

Would've been nice
