it's not *that* easy. for now the shell-codebase has *thousands* of
errors. we need something that checks small parts (e.g. functions)
and compares the error-count before and after. the output of this
approach should maybe be included in the commit-message.

also we must "mute" some "errors", e.g. the usage of 
'local' in functions, which is not POSIX (but is in the
process of inclusion)
