Thank you Bart,

  That seems like the logical path forward. I was sure hoping somebody already
had a handy-dandy parse & convert routine, but it looks like a normal convert
as you go. As I go through them I'll try and keep a list of the most common
bash/zsh conversions and notes of those cases where there is no 1-for-1
replacement. It will be an as-time-permits endeavour, but maybe we can catch
most issues.
