SubjectRe: Jive -> Kernel (International Linux) (fwd)

Wouldn't it be easier and not drain so resources from the kernel to have
the languages handled by the shell? Just seems easier to me to patch
BASH, TCSH, ASH, or whatever shell you want to use to handle the language
you want to work in and are most comfortable in.
