My experience on design is that:
   1. It's easy to make things complicated
   2. It's difficult to make things easy
Trying to be as objective as possible, I find zsh more like (1)
and rc like (2) (i.e., the design of rc requires less cognative
dissonance during application than zsh).  What's really wierd in
this analysis is how zealous people are about their favorite shell.
