I suspect that's more likely that we'll introduce shell functions in
new features than start right away in replacing old code with shell
functions.  This process has already started.  At some point it will
gather steam but it might be a bit early right now.

In the meantime maybe we should use '|' instead of ','.  That would be
a simple workaround.  In practice, '|' is far less likely to occur in
filenames than ',' is.
