Being in POSIX just isn't good enough. POSIX has a lot of features that very
basic shells just don't have. Solaris sadly is a major platform that has a
/bin/sh that is missing a lot of stuff that POSIX says you should have. I
think it also has a POSIX compliant shell but it's a hassle to users to tell
people to specify a different shell. A hassle we can usually avoid by just
using a slightly different syntax.

Philip is working on a buildbot on Solaris so hopefully these sorts of things
will be exposed more quickly and we won't end up having end users telling us.
