I know that it's no sinecure to change the behaviour of /bin/sh bacause
of the impact on all kinds of scripts written for it and that's probably
why there are so many differences between shell implemetations floating

I gathered some info about some of the differences on and wondered what way FreeBSD's
/bin/sh was going in FreeBSD 6.x/7.x in this specific department...

Any comments on how the POSIX standard should be interpreted ?
