Since the manual invites "Suggestions and 'philosophical' bug reports" I'll have a complaint. Why do you have variables named PWD and OLDPWD?
Following the historical "An Introduction To The C Shell" by William Joy:
 - builtin pwd meaning Print Working Directory
 - $CWD meaning Current Working Directory
 - $OWD meaning Old Working Directory

Knowing that $OLDPWD sounds rather stupid to me. Is there a possibility that you recover this little mistake in BASH3?
