makeSH - a .SH script maker
MakeSH examines one or more scripts and produces a .SH file that, when
run under sh, will produce the original script. The .SH script so produced has
two sections containing code destined for the output. The first section has
variable substitutions performed on it (taking values from config.sh), while
the second section does not. MakeSH does not know which variables you want to
have substituted, so it puts the whole script into the second section. It's up
to you to insert any variable substitutions in the first section for any
values you want from config.sh.
You should run makeSH from within your top-level directory
and use the relative path to the file as an argument, so that the
"Extracting ..." line printed while running the produced .SH file
later on will give that same path.

It could assume that variables from metaconfig's Glossary need to be initialized
in the first section, but I'm too lazy to make it do that.
