Then where is that choice? How will it be done?
The proposal has shown one way of doing it.
The existing dash package uses dpkg-divert, which is unsuitable on a
larger scale (larger than the one dash package). And to have bash
removable dash has to force itself as /bin/sh. So there goes even that
What alternative do you speak off where the user will have a choice of
what is /bin/sh?
