See, the nice thing about my situation is that when a client says "But
I want to install foobarsh as my /usr/xpg4/bin/sh, because it's 3 bytes
smaller than the standard one, and it comes in blue", I get to say
"That's not a supported configuration, please call back when you've
resolved the situation", rather than having create large swaths of
infrastructure to satisfy the whims of 0.01% of my users.

I sometimes think that Debian could do little more of that...
