That would be nice, think of the number of bashisms found. What would
happen if the GNU project suddenly decided to follow standards? Seen
what happend when the gcc code changed from using one set of gccisms
to a someway more standard conformant C?

As long it dosn't add extra work on other parts on Debian we shouldn't
decide what people would use their time on. It shouldn't take long
time to apply a patch to you package.

The only reason I can see to stop this is if we're short on archieve
space (which we always are I'm sure somebody would say).
