I keep hearing good things about the good Doctorow. Apparently, he also
writes a decent SF story. Rumour has it he's writing something called
/usr/bin/god

Surely that should be /sbin/god ?

Indeed. Or maybe even /god renamed from /vmunix, /boot/god if you're
one of those Linux heretics. Although then we get into the theological
questions about the roles of LILO or GRUB.

/opt/bin/god for the agnostics, of course.

For atheists it's a symlink to /dev/null.

The atheist version would be even better as a symlink to /bin/false.

The Discordians would have a symlink to /dev/random.
