that confirms something I've always suspected.  Compatibility for other 

I say this because a while back I emailed Macromedia and asked them to add -e 
to their usage of the read command in the installer script


echo -n "Where do you want to install ? "

Basically the -e is a GNU thing that allows for directory tab-completion 
(which would make great sense for the above situation).

The email I got back was the guy thought it was a great idea, but he was 
wondering how compatible it would be outside GNU tools/readline.

Now I know why he wondered that, heh
