Well, other than making sure to include a space before $PAUSE_DURATION
and after 0, and maybe using -eq rather than a string comparison, no.  ;-)

(IOW, I think it should be "if [ $PAUSE_DURATION -eq 0 ]" instead.  But
that's minor, and I doubt that you intended what you wrote to be used
verbatim anyway.  I guess the issue with using == is if somebody sets
PAUSE_DURATION to 00 or something.)
