This is relevant how?  Policy is not being followed.  In sid, we can
easily change policy, or we can easily change package scripts.

In woody, anyone who links /bin/sh to a shell allowed by debian-policy,
whether Debian zsh or a shell which they have compiled themselves, may
be suddenly deprived of installed documentation and other random things.
