Just a question - have we (or you) considered creating programs that
add POSIX support to other programs, rather than implementing it right
into the program? For example, to support cat -v, instead of adding
code for the flag, we create another program to pipe through. Then you
create a tiny shell script to create a POSIX-compliant program.

Good job nonetheless.
