Did you have a look at Eric Sunshine's _AS_SHELL_BEST proposal?
I haven't had time to review either proposal thoroughly, but a quick
glance suggests that the _AS_SHELL_BEST patch is a bit more polished
and better fixes the bugs discussed in the "Shell function reporting" thread
but your _AS_DETECT_BETTER_SHELL proposal has the nicer idea of a
generic detection mechanism.

Ideally we'd see a single proposal that does both.
