Hi Norm,

Too true.  To avoid that would seem to need a saving of the output of
one command, testing its exit status before regurgitating into the next

    foo | bar | xyzzy
    foo >a && <a bar >b && <b xyzzy

It's tempting to have a {nohup,time,...}-style command that takes two
commands as parameters and hides the buffering, but the syntax seems

    delay foo -- delay bar -- xyzzy

Cheers, Ralph.
