Hmm ... while I see a good point in linking /bin/sh to a minimal
true-bourne shell, I would not recommend doing the other way around,
otherwise we can just as well leave it to link to bash. If someone
(i.e. everybody) wants to use something better for interactive use
then they are supposed to have /bin/bash in /etc/passwd, or to use
chsh(1) to change it some other shell.
