I know ;-) When developing R.I.S.K. (the building framework used for
kerTeX and KerGIS), I had to find the minimal compatible set supported
by all Bourne like shells; and this is not in it.
But for this very example, I think that the
variable assignment was meant inside functions or with this kind of
call of a "special built-in" (this is inside the same environment and
string of process so affects the whole) and not for the prefixed
version, typically local environment setting "VAR=value utility".
Thanks for the pointers anyway!
