What's not funny is your dreadful attitude at replying to email.  The
number of timeouts on the vim and bash ports are shameful, and we're
stuck with two bash ports because you're too lazy to keep the main one
up to date.  I really have no idea why you're still allowed to plant
your flag in the ports tree and stand in the way of progress.  Please
consider dropping the ports, so people who are happy to keep them up
to date and don't ignore bug reports can work on them.
