7 It may be little known, but strictly speaking, hyphens in bash
8 identifiers are illegal:
10 `name'
11 A `word' consisting solely of letters, numbers, and underscores,
12 and beginning with a letter or underscore. `Name's are used as
13 shell variable and function names. Also referred to as an
14 `identifier'.
16 This isn't specific to xdg-basedir though, but a problem that most of
17 our eclasses suffer from.
