I'm aware of this, I have used tcsh since it first appeared on comp.sources.unix, many 
moons ago.

Because of certain differences, it cannot be used wholesale as a replacement for csh.

I'm all for tcsh being in /bin, but I don't think that it's a good idea to replace the 
industry-standard csh with tcsh as unexpected 
problems can occur when a csh script expecting csh behaviour ends up breaking due to 
the subtle differences between csh and tcsh...

It's kinda late in the process to be complaining about this, but I just noticed this 

To complete your sentance: "..., but it's not a drop-in replacement for csh."
