POSIX sh is immensely complicated, is not specified to anywhere near
the precision needed by web standards, and is not implemented
precisely to the standards that do exist.  (E.g., bash is deliberately
not POSIX-compliant by default.)  Suggesting it as a solution for
anything on the web is, well, hard for me to understand.  And it's not
going to happen.
