I feel I must interject here. That analogy is quite inaccurate (and,
besides I've suddenly become hungry). zzapper's original question is
more akin to stopping someone on the street to ask directions. It's not
like he was asking for an indept analysis of steak...err, I mean "Zsh",
merely a question on will bash potatoes, err, "scripts" will work with it
or not. A quick question deserts, err, "deserves" a quick answer
(*burp*). And, he's right. Lots of Newbies "check in" to this list with
cooking, err, "casual" questions.
