mksh – MidnightBSD Korn Shell

mksh, the MirBSD™ Korn Shell, is not only the MidnightBSD /bin/ksh, it is now their default /bin/sh as well! See the commit message for details.

laffer1@mnbsd and tg@mbsd worked together to create compatibility code for the FreeBSD® ash extensions; the version R37 of mksh(1) used already has been proven as /bin/sh in MirBSD and FreeWRT for some time, and Debian as well, which provided valuable corner case tests leading to eventual bugfixes.

We can only suggest others follow ☺ Apple, pkgsrc®, where are you?
