Okay, I understand now, you were simply trying to be able to use 10 
parameters instead of 9. I didn't ever think about this limitation, 
since 9 parameters were always enough for my needs, but your zip example 
is perfectly valid, and it might indeed be a problem for some users. 
Wors, it might be perceived as a FreeDOS "bug".

I'm not sure what alternative we would have here. Hacking up multiple 
shift invocations, as you propose (possibly looped?) could be some solution.

This might be true, but doesn't mean we should strip it right away :)
