Yes, I realize that doesn't fix the #!/bin/sh issue on Solaris.  Maybe next 
century Oracle will get their OS out of the 1960s.  Gack. I'm reminded of 
arguing with the USG people about why the /bin/sh on the 3B4000 still 
recognized '^' as a "pipe" character.  Thank gawd for source code licenses.  By 
the time I got that machine semi-functional I'm sure I had ported a third of 
the 4.2BSD source tree across to it :-)

And don't get me started about Lachman and Wollongong :-P
