Re: Deferring variable parse errors in /bin/sh

However, we could do what I see that FreeBSD has done (and when I saw it,
I wondered why) and defer the error message until the expansion actually
happens, rather than when it is parsed (provided we can find some way to
parse the thing, which would be possible here, and in most cases.)

Would that mean `sh -n` would not complain about it? If so, it seems like a
bad idea.
