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.
