I really don't see the problem.
$ echo * | xargs mv newdir
fails, yes, but
$ echo * newdir | xargs mv
Acknowledged, sometimes the input to xargs might require a subshell
$(brutal complexity; echo newdir) | xargs mv
to acheive the same ends, but I agree with Mouse: are we going to
change every utility that requires arguments in a specific order?
