Damn. Just tried tcsh and it choked on $() *and* ``.
Are you telling me there are systems out there braindamaged enough to
ship only a csh-like shell ? Because if we want a script that works with
the dumbest shell in existence (in this case tcsh) I really don't see
how we can make it.

I'd say lets just stick with posix shells. I've always heard csh-like
shells where pretty weird and this only confirms it. I we really want to
work on csh-only systems, I fear we'll have to ship another script in
real native csh syntax.
