Exactly. doesn't need GNU touch, but it does need a
reasonably standard one.  The stuff in /usr/ucb on Solaris is not just
ancient but positively prehistoric and nowhere near standard.  The
problem with your patch is that it will insist on GNU touch and sed and
that simply isn't necessary on most platforms and we don't want to
require people to go get stuff they don't really need.  (By the way, did
you have an actual problem with sed or was that just for good measure?)

Something COULD happen today.  And if anything DOES,
by golly, I'm going to be ready for it! -- Calvin
