Just gave 'em a quick read, and what I came away with is that the
(( ... )) and [[ ... ]] stuff that ksh "added" doesn't have portably
guaranteed behavior; sounds like the subset of sh I'm working in is
awfully close to exactly the portable intersection of what standards
mandate and real shells simplement.

And I've been told folks where I work have been rassling with
compatibility problems between older and newer ksh's (they didn't
avoid shell-specific features).
