 Valid question.

I believe a major goal of bash will be to cross operate with other tools.
In this case, being able to read text files generated by python, when
running under WSL, seems like something bash should do.

On the question of minimal changes. I believe many bash users (some are not
hard core developers, just devops) are tasked with transfering existing
solutions to WSL. I am not aware of hard data, but I believe those are
underrepresented in this forum.

I admit no hard data to support any of those.
