8 It does not fail, the problem is that some construct works only on some shells
9 or systems (for example type and kill -HUP warnings).
11 Maybe we should add a getopt flag (-q for example) to mask that types of
12 warnings, or maybe we should (for Gentoo/Alt) adapt files to be (almost)
13 POSIX compliant (so command -v instead of type, kill -s HUP instead of
14 kill -HUP, and go on)

18 Yes, as supplementary check
