Considering that our complete toolset is written in bash I'd very much
favour an all-bash solution over _anything_ else.

Seriously, where's the point of using binaries of the coreutils package
if they can be replaced by a simple and swift bash statement (including
a notable performance boost!)?

I'd vote against adjusting paths or anything alike and stick with
Stefan's patches. After all, they do provide the exact same
functionality .. and that is what we are looking for, aren't we?



PS: Please do not send stuff like this to the lunar-bugs list but
rather to lunar at lunar-linux.org. Thanks!
