 I more or less assumed that section "3. Basic Shell Features" is all
POSIX, in contrast to section "6. Bash Features" which starts like this:
"This section 6 describes features unique to Bash."

I think I was wrong. There seems to be at least two non-POSIX features
documented in the "Basic" section (brace expansion and process

Does the manual make any attempt to draw a line between POSIX and
non-POSIX features? Does the "unique to bash" introduction sentence
really make sense since most of these features are also found in other
shells? Thanks in advance...
