The biggest problem with this seems to be scripts that expect /bin/sh to 
point to /bin/bash.  Arguably those scripts are broken, but there exists 
another choice that avoids that unnecessary breakage:

  1b. Add /bin/posix-shell (or whatever), which points to /bin/sh by 
      default, but can point to any POSIX compatible shell.
