This idea is entirely general since for example in
a bash shell script or Makefile I could write

  wget http://.../pamphlet-file/tangle/code/hello |
    gcc -o hello.exe

to extract the code chunk named 'hello' from the
pamphlet named 'pamphlet-file' and pipe the source
code to the C compiler to produce an executable. Etc.

I think that's nice.
