Instead of writing all these little functions to do the job, why
not write a little executable which you can easily copy across to
other boxen?  While I'd love to write all my little psgrep-like
scripts as zsh functions, it's easier to admin all the scripts if
they're in separate scripts.

I rarely touch shell functions (except for scripting, of course)
or aliases.  #!/bin/sh scripts all the way.  It'll save you
trouble in the end :).
