Well frankly that's the only response you could possibly get by
repeatedly filing such frivolous bugs against my packages.

For the record, ash-medium was intended to be used on the boot floppies as
they lacked a small shell with history support.  This is not appropriate in
the main ash package since this history support is incomplete and also
unnecessary for non-interactive use.
