I agree with kre: The original design was wonderful. The major
problem was that it was not---quite---compatible with 4BSD and with
SysV. Yet the incompatibilities were in areas that everyone agrees
were weak, and, moreover, in areas that were mutually incompatible
anyway! Any new standard *must* break some code. Let it break
code that was acknowledged insufficent, and by replacing it with
code that has been tested and found satisfactory.
