Thanks, will actually do that, just not before the weekend,
dayjob’s keeping me busy, and I need to be careful to not
burn out myself in the evening too.

Which tree should I build? A release (if so, which)? Or
some CVS branch?

Do note we clock at roughly 1000 pystones for the fastest
machines… yes 1000 not 10000.

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
