I'm a little unclear on how it compares to /bin/ksh, which is presumably
also an up-to-date and maintained descendant of pdksh.  How does mksh
improve on NetBSD's ksh?  (If this has been discussed before or
elsewhere, a pointer to that would be great)  I had a look at the mksh
website and came away a little nonplussed: since I don't know what's
wrong with pdksh I'm not sure what improvements there are to make
in a general code cleanup.
