	That reminds me to file a JIRA for this…

	AFAIK, there is only one thing that I’ve found breaks on modern-ish Solaris/Illumos:  xargs
-P in the ssh handler.  It’s a GNU-extension that I mistakenly thought was POSIX.  It’s
trivially to use the OS check bits to use a non-parallel version of it.  But realistically,
users should just install pdsh instead.  (even if they have a working xargs…)

	It’s been a while since I’ve run all of the shell bits on my Illumos box, so other stuff
may have snuck in since then.
