Pushed.  Fairly stable, but a couple of tests failing:

- I haven't implemented XTRACE yet.  Will follow.

- The new interface "fixes" the old behaviour

  typeset noktfoo=`echo noktarg1 noktarg2`

so that this now assigns a scalar to noktfoo with no wordsplitting.
This is certainly correct for the interface we are trying to implement,
because it's what bash does.  However, it was previously controlled by
KSH_TYPESET.  What's the right way to do it from now on?  I can probably
kludge in the old behaviour with NO_KSH_TYPESET if it seems desirable,
though logically that shouldn't really control the reserved word
interface which should parse consistently.

Anyway, I haven't touched that test case for nokshtypeset yet.
