Not in mksh. Sorry.

a) It's bloat. Period.

b) It makes the shell's behaviour non-deterministic.

In BSD, we believe in the KISS principles very strongly.
You might be able to do that with AT&T ksh though.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.		-- Coywolf Qi Hunt
