Comment(by bon):

 > AFAICT, the stty sane bit can go, so we could put a lighter weight test

 eliminate that
 <snip>

 are you saying you're going to source them once per runlevel?

 then you'd have to export the functions, and export -f is a bashism

 not to mention that exporting that many vars to begin with is bound to
 cause conflicts
