If we limit ourselves to POSIX only, then either
1) the LSB will not contain enough stuff to be able to
do anything useful, or
2) We will never finish the LSB because we have 100's of pages of
specifications that need writing to cover the things not in POSIX.
We are using SUS as the base because it provides a large chunck of the pages
mentioned in #2.
As has been stated before. We will specifiy differences against SUS where it
makes sense. This seems to be one of those cases. A couple of lines
documenting the difference is still easier to write than writing a complete
spec for a shell.
