- csh cannot redirect stderr seperately from stdout
- on pipes the exit status from the first command is the exit status of the 
total command
- will not expand matches without a user provided part, for *every* component 
of a path

There's plenty of reasons not to use csh and if you know what you're doing, 
BSD lets you. And no, I don't want to type exec zsh when I'm finally logged 
into the box that has a load of 100+.
