	To my great horror, csh is used in most of the DNS debugging and 
many of the log-processing scripts that I have inherited.  One of 
these days, I will finally live up to my threat of importing all this 
functionality into other programs that use other languages (toss 
"doc" and incorporate that functionality into "dnswalk", etc...), but 
that has not happened yet.

	Meanwhile, I don't know that a dynamic vs. static csh does me any 
measurable harm -- the delays waiting for responses from nameservers 
will overwhelm any local delays caused by dynamic vs. static linking.
