This is mostly for Corinna (as the tcsh maintainer)...
I just noticed what the tcsh postinstall script looks like.
> rm -f /usr/bin/csh /usr/bin/csh.exe /usr/bin/csh.lnk
> ln -s tcsh /usr/bin/csh
Isn't the above a bit brutal? I mean, suppose the user has her own
/bin/csh script that invokes tcsh with some flags? Or suppose she ported
some other csh and installed it as /usr/bin/csh.exe? Wouldn't it make
more sense to do what the other postinstall scripts do and only link if
the file doesn't exist?
