I suppose the "feature" that is missing is the ability to run shell commands as 
they are defined by the shell that will be running the shell commands.  
Furthermore, the ability to more easily port our numerous makefiles to use gnu 
make without having to jump through hoops because gnu make doesn't fully 
support the shell that comes stock with all of our developers computers...
