The biggest problem with ksh93 is that you don't know what
bug gets replaced with a new bug in the next release. The
code is also very 'interesting' to read, reinvents almost
every wheel and comes with its very own build system.

The second biggest problem with ksh93 is the handling of
here documents. But that's probably true for any ksh, it
is for ours.
