That's why I said "any system worth it's beef" ;)

But yeah, that will be a problem...

OK, so what about this perl solution - perl is used elsewhere in tramp;
but it does slow down loading a bit...

I wonder if you could, instead of sending the implementation to the shell
each time, cache it in /tmp with a name unique to the current user. At
least then it survives to next reboot, but again, I don't know whether the
process of finding the cache file is going to save us any time, compared
to just sending it as a shell function.

If it weren't for C, we'd be writing programs in BASI, PASAL, and OBOL.
