(you jumped the gun a bit there. The issue is only being
discussed on the austin-group mailing list. The standard is
currently unclear on the matter, it might very well change to
allow the zsh/pdksh behaviour. Then again, though the zsh
behaviour makes more sense to me, in sh emulation, what matters
more is compatibility and it seems more of the widely used sh
implementations got with the ksh88 way).
It might be worth adding that after
the EXIT, DEBUG or ERR traps will not be executed, as the text
above would suggest they may.
Other traps and asynchronous job notifications are still handled
though (as opposed to when one execs an external command).
Not sure it's worth saying what would (not) happen in
! exec something
time exec something
