They're not my variables. I've written an app which runs on Linux and 
"Windows". Most of the time on "Windows", it's probably going to be 
running on Cygwin/bash. However, there's always going to be someone who 
runs it in a DOS box.

So, my problem is, how do I find out if they've got a sane shell or not? 
I can't ask them to export SHELL; I might as well just ask them to 
provide a command-line arg to tell me what their shell is anyway. I need 
some automatic way to do it.
