Re: RFC: Change to the way sh -x works?

So, can anyone imagine a use case where "follow whatever stderr happens to 
be subsequently redirected to" (current behaviour) would make more sense 
than "whatever stderr currently points to" (after your change) would make 
more sense? Or anything relying on current behaviour?

After your change, would
	set -x 2>/dev/stderr
effect the old behaviour?
