The only thing I could think of is that mksh allows compressing
duplicate history entries into one, such that e.g. the following

        $ foo
        $ foo
        $ bar

would result in a history file that contains `foo` only once, while with
pdksh, `foo` would be contained twice.

Other than that, I haven't yet found a difference, but then again I
didn't use mksh that long before switching from Linux to OpenBSD.
