To be fair: my bug wasn’t about -a and -o, but about the printf builtin
which Policy is silent about. Some shells do have a builtin printf,
most don’t. printf(1) lives in /usr/bin, and Md’s init script set the
$PATH explicitly to /bin:/sbin yet still used printf(1), which, for a
POSIX sh script, is probably sensible anyway. He “just” barricaded all
three or four ways I could come up to fix this for the users.

Yes, I hate users and I want them to suffer.
