First, let's not start a shell holy war. Suffice to say noone with any knowledge of shells would dismiss zsh as crap, especially in comparison to the Bourne Shell. Second when a patch has been submitted numerous times to fix a problem on a particular platform that makes access to that platform a moot point. The Developer has access to the solution and that is what matters. nathan
