Adding a +1 for sirjofri's idea 3, which seems like it would be achievable,
has clear objectives, and a compelling result.

For idea 4, a notable utility is pipefile -
https://9p.io/magic/man2html/1/pipefile. It allows you to stitch a command
in-between the reading and/or writing of a file. It'd be worth eyeballing
and considering for the purposes you're thinking of, and may provide a
jumping-off point.

Cheers,

Marshall
