	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.

Excess on occasion is exhilarating.  It prevents moderation from
acquiring the deadening effect of a habit.
