Pardon me, then. I was under the delusion that ash was
actually a useful shell, rather than being a glorified POSIX
I'll deprecate ash as a shell, in that case, and look for a
real shell to use as a /bin/sh (bash makes me uneasy).
Do we have a non-toy shell to use as /bin/sh replacement then?
Also, ash should note it is not a /bin/sh replacement, since
it shall gratuitously break systems that are not rigidly POSIX
compliant, and should not be used on a non-experimental system.
Actually, when ash cripples the built in echo, I shall
probably file a rave bug to that effect on it.
