So there is absolutely no need to force #!/bin/bash in the general case if
we can tell debstd exactly which ones *need* to be #!/bin/bash.
The only problem I see here is that you seem to dislike the "bug
report method" I proposed.
Think about this: We may need the information about the scripts needing
#!/bin/bash at some time. If we make them all #!/bin/bash, we lose this
IMHO, "just in case" is not a valid reason to bypass a GNU standard.
