I agree. The parser became quite robust after shellshock. I haven't been able to
find any bugs there (and don't expect to find many anyways).

I do think there are still bugs around readline and I'm hoping to concentrate my
efforts there. It'd be nice to get rid of the multibyte character handling edge
cases and other oddities before the release. Although I'm not asking for you to
hold it, I just wanted to understand how much time I have left, and how to
organize my efforts around that schedule.
