See, here's the thing. I know this is true of myself, and I don't
speak for Dan. But most of "us" linux users don't really know what IS
and IS NOT a "linuxism".

So comments like Xavier showed us... "cut the bashism crap" and the
like couldn't be more useless.

The best thing that can be done is actually pointing out SPECIFIC
"linuxisms" so we:
a) Know what is and is not a linuxism
b) Don't repeat it again
c) Can fix the code.
