I would be thrilled if bash could be added to the base system, or if ksh
could be modified to have more bash features for interactive use. I like
using the up arrow key to get to the previous command, for instance.
And I love the programmable tab completion; I use it a lot.
And I agree; I'd like to see ksh become the default shell for root,
instead of csh. Shell script programming in csh is sheer hell for me
compared to bourne shell programming.
