My quest to improve POSIX has been paying off. Yesterday (my 30th birthday, no less), XCU ERNs 130 and 131 were approved for the next revision of POSIX: http://www.opengroup.org/austin/mailarchives/ag/msg10168.html. 130 dealt with whether we are allowed to have blind macros (ie. "decr" evaluates to `decr' rather than `-1', as contrasted with "decr()"). 131 dealt with the behavior of
changecom when handed empty arguments.

Great news.  And Happy Birthday for Wednesday :-)
