This conversation is cool.  It reminds me of a phone call I had with somebody 
in the
"pit" at AT&T tech support, arguing about why they could never drop '^' as the 
"pipeline" separator in their SVR1 /bin/sh.  The lad was absolutely convinced 
'|' was an expression of the new heretics, and would not stand past the next 
corporate quarter.

And then there was the Wollongong, followed by Lachman, TCP stack.

What does this have to do with nmh?  Nothing, really.  I was running MH on an 
assortment of Sun 3/* gear while I desperately tried to evict the undead 3B4000 
from the shop.  MH helped in the effort ;-)
