I have some of this already from David Weinholdt but I'm waiting until
after Sarge releases to put it in.
Technically policy says that if we're using /bin/sh, we should be pure
posix, (No XSIisms, even). However, glibc has existed like this for
multiple releases, and if this becomes an RC bug, I think we should just
ask the release managers to ignore it for Sarge.
I do not agree with a word you say, but I will defend to the death your
right to say it.
