Isn't all of busybox, including ash, GPL? Wouldn't that mean that if any busybox code is imported into dash, that from then on dash can only be distributed under GPL?

I have a local patch set of stuff that I haven't considered in an appropriate state to send to the list. One of the features I've got working is multibyte locale support. It doesn't assume UTF-8 (only assumes stateless encodings) and is tolerant of malformed strings. I've got it working in pattern matching, in glob() sorting, in trimming (#, ##, % and %%), in field splitting, and in "$*" joining. I'll see if I can polish it a bit and make it available when I've got some more free time again, but I'm not sure how soon that will be.

Cheers,
Harald van Dijk
