It might be nice to try to build linux from scratch with it and see  
what breaks. I've restarted my 7.3 conversion pass last weekend and I'm  
going to try to switch on the compiler and libc builds this time, but  
I'm doing it under bash first.

Ideally I want to get toysh implemented ASAP, and might take some code  
from the public domain version of mksh to help that. In practice,  
neither of my last two day jobs has been particularly amenable to  
having as much free time to program as I'd like, and scheduled stuff  
likekeeping up with kernel releases (3 targets currently broken in  
3.10-rc4) take priority. Plus I should really finish the musl  

Working on it. :)
