I've a copy (of ash) which matches the standard rather more closely
than the one in the source tree - I fixed the output of 'jobs',
sorted out the difference between normal and special builtins,
and (I think) fixed the long standing issue with the exitstatus of `cmd`.
Also some fixes to (the rather buggy) vi editing mode.

I'll make a patch to the current code if someone will apply it.
