What would the "saltbae" command do, if you could make it do anything?

I have this sense that Linux is missing out on the Saltbae machismo that it deserves.

If there were a linux CLI tool called “saltbae”, what would it do?

It would be something vaguely suggestive of this:


Or maybe it could be a plymouth theme, seen at boot time, before x.org of wayland loads?

It plays this in your terminal while it salts, then hashes any passwords you feed it.


Another thought is an alternative form of “progress bar”, say on a wget or curl download, which shows the salt being dropped at a rate corresponding to 20% downloaded, 40%, 60%, 80%, 100% (all the salt is dropped).
