it was mainly my bug hunting and dalias (musl side) & denys vlasenko's 
(bb side) bug fixing effort to get sabotage to work without gnu sed 
which led to a couple of busybox sed and musl TRE fixes between bb 
1.20.0 and 1.20.2 releases.
as of busybox 1.20.2, its sed works for every one of the ~200 packages 
in my sabotage fork (yes, even kernel and ncurses), so its seems to be 
"good" now.
