	I think Neil brings up a good point here. How hard would it be for the
proponents of the change to create a dot file that causes the new tcsh
to emulate the behavior of the old tcsh that's currently installed? Then
the people with finger habits (which I fully sympathize with, I install
bash just about everywhere for the same reason) will be able to have
their cake and eat it too.
