Although I'm not "Dr. Watson ?"; Yes, this is the kde-solaris list :-)
and therefore it's quite irrelevant how sh is implemented in Linux.

Helping people to understand and develop using the GNU Tools,
in order to archive maximum portability, is very relevant to
the kde-solaris list (and should be very appreciated by the
official KDE on Solaris maintainer).

Now, let's end this discussion.

I'm quite sure that the majority of the readers
of the kde-solaris list by now are quite aware
of what shell dialect(s) to avoid, in conjunction
with the GNU Tools, and those still in doubt are
recommended to consult the GNU tool documentation.
