I had to grin when I read this, because elsewhere you were basically
advocating to screw all Unix and just focus on some recent Linux (+
Darwin?), which dramatically reduces your target set to platforms where
much fancier/safe/cool languages actually DO exist (and you could borrow
off the shelf implementations of all that mailbox/read/sort/edit stuff).
