	The sh man page does not detail command line editing, and does
	not describe the semantics of variables, such as PS1, which it
	uses in special ways.
	Additionally, it suggests bash as a ksh clone, but pd-ksh is
	much more of a ksh clone, and bash is somewhat of an independant
	man sh
	List all of the shell magic variables, and their semantics.
	Replace "bash" with "pd-ksh".
