I didn't realize yesterday, that ksh93 is not a nick name, but ksh version 93. :D

So it would be okey with you, if I try to implement it using <<#?

Is there any git repo of bash?

I don't know what you mean by that.  ksh is not "downstream" of
bash; it is a separate project.  Whether bash incorporates this
feature or one like it is up to Chet, who hasn't yet chimed in.

This ugly 'bug' is here for decades and really irritates me
and many people, who ever used shell for larger scripting and
don't like to use tabs.
I don't really have an opinion.  To me it's just another shell
scripting wart to get used to, and not even the ugliest one.
I would just prefer that a potential implementation not diverge
from prior art needlessly.
