That’s just another argument for using /bin/mksh-static as /bin/sh.
(It’s also faster than /bin/dash which is dynamically linked.)

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
