   |  I was hinted at this, which works:
   |  (nonexistent) 2>/dev/null
 It does, but unless you need a sub-shell, which nothing in
 the original suggested
 	{ nonexistant; } 2>/dev/null
 works as well, without an extra fork.
 It is still likely that, unless people really want to keep the
 current behaviour, that I will change sh to be like every other
 shell (I can find) on the planet (including FreeBSD's).
