I fully appreciate the motivation.  But it is a bit sad that this
begins with "#!/bin/bash" but it seems that the script is full of
bash-isms.  I haven't gone through the script to see if these are
inevitable or gratuitous yet, but I'd assume it made it easier for
you to write it to step outside the pure POSIX shell?

I completely forgot to avoid bash, as I wrote this first as an experiment.

OK, it probably is easier to write in bash than using expr if you
want to do regexp.
Just to clarify. I am saying that it is OK to give up writing in
pure POSIX and relying on bash-isms after seeing these lines.

I'll try rewriting it using POSIX shell and see how hard it is.
