"Release early, release often" does not mean "Release crap" or don't do
design, or do the minimal amount of thinking and UI design. Furthermore, the
version of squirrelsh that I tested was 1.2.2. Considering that open-source
programs should start with 0.2.x, etc. it means that it is already considered
stable and ready-for-prime-time. But it isn't ready-for-prime-time.

It's not a very early release. And even in early releases, I expect to have
documentation in a usable format, or a usable syntax or realine-integration.

Why should I, given that squirrelsh is as unusable as it is? I've got better
objectives to spend my time on. Meanwhile, I'm happy with bash, and there's
also zsh, or possibly fish. I don't need to work on squirrelsh, which has
made such a bad impression on me.

Don't use it, Shlomi - it's not for you. I'm surprised you even wasted
your time on it, since you're evidently not a part of its niche.
