That looks pretty tricky.

How about if we just default to Bash instead?
Pretty much everybody has Bash if they don't have ksh,
and if they're on a platform that's likely to want to
run this script.

Another possibility is an early part of the script
that looks for a shell where 'select' works, and
then reexecutes the script with that shell.
