I suppose I could get rid of it. What's the feeling?
We could do one of
1. Remove the ksh symlink from the pdksh package.
2. Rename ksh.exe (in astksh) to astksh.exe and have a ksh symlink to
3. Maybe only two options. :-)
4. Deprecate the pdksh package.
Now that we have the real, honest-to-goodness ksh, do we really need
pdksh? Just a suggestion...
I totally agree, there is no reason why pdksh should be the default ksh.
Let users make the symlink themselves. We should always allow "The
Real Thing" to trump some knockoff...
