You can report bugs agains that based on policy:
Restrict your script to POSIX features when possible so that it may
use `/bin/sh' as its interpreter. If your script works with ash, it's
probably POSIX compliant, but if you are in doubt, use `/bin/bash'.
but that's it. If people want to have /bin/sh point to some other shell
they can just go ahead and do it. All the benefits of using a possibly smaller
shell will be realised with the exception of using less disk space. And it
will be *their* choice to risk breaking the system.
