Hrm, but the docs, both, specifically say that (unquoted) $@ behaves
like $* except in the face of no arguments, so I cannot do that.

But thanks for the feedback. My reading differed, but you have a
point, and the others can be kept as-is.

FWIW, I'm quite impressed with mksh interactively. I thought it was much
*much* more bare bones. But it turns out it beats the living hell out of
ksh93 in that respect. I'd even consider it for my daily use if I hadn't
wasted half my life on my zsh setup. :-) -- Frank Terbeck in #!/bin/mksh
