Anyway, a few of us on IRC decided that we'd had enough and were going to use Perl's Getopt::Long as a model for the new version. Within the source I noticed a test for a peculiar environment variable called "POSIXLY_CORRECT" and seriously wondered how many people actually have this set.
It was then that someone pointed me to this amusing bit.
Do I need to request support for "POSIX_ME_HARDER"?
