before investing time, make sure it will stay close to whatever release
you plan on running.  right now it "supports" 4.5 - i don't know
anything about nsh, but i can tell you things change at a good pace.  i
do however know the author is fully aware of the rate of change...

nothing useful from me here, but i'll send anyway ;)
