It is posix compliant, but falls foul of a common shell bug.
Avoid commands that contain unbalanced parentheses in here-documents,
comments, or case statement patterns, as many shells mishandle them.
For example, Bash 3.1, ksh88, pdksh 5.2.14, and Zsh 4.2.6 all
mishandle the following valid command:
echo $(case x in x) echo hello;; esac)
