9 Just throwing my opinion in:
11 I like proposal 2 better than proposal 1. Placing a regex-based
12 constraint on a bash variable assignment doesn't feel right to me.
14 I slightly prefer 2a over 2b because it feels cleaner. I'm sure it
15 will break some tools, but I don't have a good feel for the scope of
16 that breakage.
