In my case I didn't want the bother of having to learn the 
idiosyncrasies of two shells.  I picked one and was hoping to never have 
to learn the other.  If I was planning to transition from bash to zsh, 
I'd be hoping to subsequently avoid bash altogether and thus go through 
the conversion trouble once but then forget about bash and do all 
further work in zsh.  So space considerations would be the least of my 
motives.  Just me, but zsh syntax is so abstruse that not only learning 
it, but also trying to remember the differences vis a vis bash, would 
seem brain blowing.

So it seems David will have to do it line by line.
