Which, of course, suggests an alternative solution :-)
  ln -s /bin/sh /bin/sh^M

(Which wouldn't work very well unless you made /bin/sh^M a somewhat hacked
shell that handles DOS line ends; perhaps bash could do that automatically
when invoked as bash^M.)

Never mind.

We'll know the future has arrived when every mailer transparently
quotes lines that begin with "From ", but no-one remembers why.
