Just a clarification -- I did not veto the package as much as I vetoed
having it as a *separate* package.  If this is indeed an update of pdksh,
I'm willing to relinquish maintainership (and the package could also be
renamed, FWIW).  But having both in the distro would be pretty useless.

IMO, until Jari replies to my proposal, cygwin-apps is not an appropriate
place for reporting bugs and results of testing mksh.  You should be able
to report the bugs directly to him, however.
