   Posix.2 says that any
   command line that does not contain a command to be executed after
   expansion should return the status of any command substitution
   performed while expanding the command, or zero if no command
   subsitution occurs. 

Please cite the *exact* text from POSIX.2 which specifies that.  When
I looked, the wording was quite unclear, but seemed to imply the
NetBSD behaviour.
