Yes, but bash doesn't allow `30=foo' as a normal assignment whereas zsh
does, so I think a different error message here might be better.
Something like `identifier not allowed in this context'.

Otherwise this is fine --- there's no likelihood of us allowing
individual positional parameters to be made local.
