Yes, like most of my packages.
posh does not provide any benefit over dash, so I have no plan to
cripple my scripts to support posh and I urge other maintainers to do
the same.


md@wonderland:~$size /bin/bash /bin/dash /bin/posh
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename

  79407	    896	  10236	  90539	  161ab	/bin/dash
  97890	   4524	      0	 102414	  1900e	/bin/posh

(Feel free to add more meaningful benchmarks.)
