The uci size is actually 440k, please amend if you get a chance Robert.

Built this mainly to test that my scripts would run on it ok, in particular tripl which is going onto Sourceforge soon, since bash-3.2 has significantly changed some things and has added new syntax.

Beware: iirc single-quoted regexes are no longer legal in bash-3.2.  I think you don't quote regexes at all now (?)

getopts has been enhanced and there is new array syntax, among many other changes in this series of bash.
