You are free to send patches with the proposed feature. That way we
would be able to test it, and see if it doesn't conflict with
standards or existing codebases.

There doesn't seem to be much demand for this feature, aside from you
two. Therefore, I don't think it's worth the time of Chet to add it,
when he has clearly better things to do with his time (fixing real
bugs for example). Sure, a lot of things could be added to bash,
Ksh-like discipline functions and compound variables, hey, even FP
things like closures, anonymous functions, ... but the point is, are
they worth the effort? If I want real OOP and FP, I use Python and

So, I repeat. If you're in need of the feature, implement it.
Otherwise, you're asking too much IMHO.
