Hi Rocco,

        Committed and credited in both trees.  Can you take a look at
how the 1.0 tree looks though; since the diff didn't apply properly I
sort of shoved it in there by hand.  I also had to change the charalloc
call to an nmalloc * sizeof(char *).  I hope it will work without the
memory being initialized.  Please let me know if not.

Good question, but how do we determing whether the program is going to 
terminate or not :)  I think it would only take one try for a newbie 
trying to run "bash" to realize it aint gonna work :)

Okay, seems portable enough to me.
