If people have time to enhance Bash as a programming language, I'd sure rather they spend that time enhancing one of the languages that are already way ahead of Bash (Perl, Python, Java, whatever). Couldn't we let Bourne Shell (as a programming language) take its place in history?
On the other hand, I'll never get tired of new inventions in Bash as a command shell.
