It has been an exciting weekend for me. I studied the dynamic vs static scoping rules and I think I have a better handle on things, but I have a few questions.

It seems that there's no reason why we are not allowed to write nested functions. Nested functions would not be visible to other functions, and might be a way of providing capabilities to users to specify *when* they want to have static scoping.

So between nested functions, dynamic scoping and recursion, I was wondering if people have explored pattern usages that might be germaine to bash? Any do's and dont's? Any gotchas?
