Most Unix APIs are kind of crap, I don't know where this "unix philosophy" stuff came from

Probably Berkeley TJ, little composable units of discreet behavior, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_philosophy from Ken no less. Not so much crap as unable to rise to the occasion. I'm just today digging through trying an actual supported 64bit arm distribution for my rpi3 and rpi4 to work with deno and support moving forward and when I do apt update etc it fails to work with ipv6 and https. Simply consider Nodejs which you're familiar with and contrast with Deno, or React with LitElement, or whatever else and it's a remarkably consistent pattern.
