If all shells worked exactly the same, what would be the purpose of
having more than one to choose from? Zsh doesn't fall into the same
traps of traditional sh like bash did, and it is possible to write
working scripts without using horribly convoluted constructs. If you
think that "sucks", that is your loss. Looking forward to not getting
a reply to this since you've already sent your last post to this
mailing list, you're welcome.
