That sounds like what he was hoping to accomplish.  He is going to be
disappointed, unless he's willing to accept one of the "90% solutions"
that are so incredibly popular.

Thanks for your answer!

As I'm not inclined to accept less than 100% of anything, I'm indeed very unhappy with this situation. It turns out that a universal solution is to design shell scripts so that they never need to know their location. This, in turn, may lead to design restrictions in other parts of a system based at least partly on shell scripts. And this, at times, is certainly a pain in the ass.
