I already said why `unset` is different.  If it wasn't clear, a direct
example is the fact that `delete` in javascript is a special syntax
rather than a function.  To make it more confusing, the other obvious
place where an lvalue appears (left of a =), is special in bash for
other reasons, but it does make it easier to assume that `unset` is
special.
