Have you written many scripts that modify $IFS? Because I don't yet

tells me that modifying $IFS in anything other than trivial scripts is
just asking for trouble, but maybe that isn't true if you know how to
manage the consequences.
I guess what I'm asking is: Are you familiar with the side effects of
changing $IFS, and can you give advice on how to control them?
