Not to be annoying or anything, but are you for standards or agin them?
Until LSB becomes a reality, POSIX is pretty much all we have in the way
of standards covering what commands should/should not be available and
what precisely they should do. I think two new (albeit redundant)
commands doesn't really make an assault on the namespace...
Flame away lads.
