Can you explain why this is needed?

The docstring of eshell-parse-modifiers says:

   Parse value modifiers and predicates at point.
   If ALLOW-PREDS is non-nil, predicates will be parsed as well.
   Return a cons cell of the form
   NEW-STRING is STRING minus any modifiers.  PRED-FUNC-LIST is a list of
   predicate functions.  MOD-FUNC-LIST is a list of result modifier
   functions.  PRED-FUNCS take a filename and return t if the test
   succeeds; MOD-FUNCS take any string and preform a modification,
   returning the resultant string.

If I read this right, `mod' (which is one of MOD-FUNCS) should take
a string and return a string, IIUC.  So, maybe the right fix is not to
change this code but to change the functions returned by
