* shvar.h
* Interface for non-destructively reading/writing files containing
* only shell variable declarations and full-line comments.
* Includes explicit inheritance mechanism intended for use with
* Red Hat Linux ifcfg-* files. There is no protection against
* inheritance loops; they will generally cause stack overflows.
* Furthermore, they are only intended for one level of inheritance;
* the value setting algorithm assumes this.
