Re: zsh vs. zsh-common version mismatch

This will happen every time between “maintainer uploads new zsh” and
“buildd has built the package”. If you can convince the maintainers
to revert this package split, you win – otherwise… you’ll have to
live with this.

And prod the APT maintainers to make cases like this default to
keeping the older zsh-common package instead of removing zsh.

FWIW, I'm quite impressed with mksh interactively. I thought it was much
*much* more bare bones. But it turns out it beats the living hell out of
ksh93 in that respect. I'd even consider it for my daily use if I hadn't
wasted half my life on my zsh setup. :-) -- Frank Terbeck in #!/bin/mksh
