As of this weekend (and Benthos v3.13) you can now use a
bloblang processor and complementary condition. These components are in a beta phase, which means that based on feedback the mapping language might change in minor ways in upcoming minor releases.

My ultimate intention is to completely eradicate the need for a
text processor, as well as a range of others. However, I'll need as much help as possible to get the language right, so please consider testing and feeding back on Github, the Gitter channel, or event @ me on Twitter for the good of blobkind.
