I no longer intend to close this ancient ITP myself; I live more than
happy with the Z shell and honestly haven’t felt an urge to play with
rush for ages.  If someone else wants finds this worthwhile: For the

svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-ruby-extras/packages-wip/rush; to get in touch
with the maintainer, there is ruby-shell@googlegroups.com.
