Trust me I would notice the mis-features.  Once installed tcsh 'cas I was
told how great it was.  Riped it out 4 hours later due to incompatibilities
with these 40 year old, 20 year BSD csh trained fingers of mine would keep
typing things that tcsh didn't like.

It also would not grok my prompt env setting either...
