Thank you for the inspiration. I ran the devel version of the test suite
through gcov, added some tests, and was able to increase the coverage of
subst.c (the word expansion code, plus) from 83% to 86%. It's tough to get
it higher than that due to the functions that exist only for readline
support and the debugging and system call error-handling code.
