[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#697994: initscripts: cannot create temp file for here-document: Read-only file system

JFYI, in mksh, here documents (and here strings, and in the future,
process substitution) also creates temporary files, although it does
honour $TMPDIR (and even track changes of it, as long as it’s not
unset, during the script runtime).

For completeness. We do have three viable shells for /bin/sh in
Debian, after all. (Actually four, and /bin/mksh-static is even
faster than dash.)

I want one of these. They cost 720 € though… good they don’t have the HD hole,
which indicates 3½″ floppies with double capacity… still. A tad too much, atm.
