I wish to apologize publicly for my language. I could have phrased my
comments differently, and less offensively. Sorry about that, I was
I want to inform you that I'm not a complete moron, and have been known to use
bad grammer voluntarily for style effects :)
and I also maintain that not invoking shell-scripts through a shell explicitly
by relying on the executable scripts being set is a portability-101 gotcha.
It is rather bizarre this isn't yet in the Apache distribution.
Think CD-Rom, think broken distribution tools, think having to recover your
archive through less-than-perfect operating systems, and then you start
chmod'ing before running scripts.
Add networks, read-only source archives mounted from an exotic filesystem that
doesn't run on Unix, symbolic links that don't preserve rights, and
pretty-soon, you start adding $SHELL where it's needed.
