Re: Do not make mksh the default shell on macOS

The committer has clearly stated that the DYLD_* issue is the only
reason for this change in the GitHub thread.  This has also been
answered in points 9 and 10.

I have already answered this question in the original e-mail.

I have also answered this in the GitHub thread and point 10.  mksh
does not replace pdksh, but the macOS system shells.

As all of your questions have already been answered, I am forced
to assume that you have not read the original e-mail, nor the GitHub

It does not seem that you have read the GitHub thread, so I'm not
sure how you came to that conclusion.

I do not see how these sentences are related to each other, unless
you are implying that the committer was the object of my criticism,
and not the commit itself.  This is clearly false.  I also don't
see how my criticism of the commit is illegitimate.

This is absurd.  You seem to be implying that I am criticising the
committer and not the commit.  Pretending that the original e-mail
is a veiled attack on the committer only serves to stifle discussion.
