They should be fixed as well, remember that as long as we continue using
bash as the default /bin/sh people who make the move will suffer the
consequences of people writing /bin/sh scripts which should really
be /bin/bash ones.
By the way, don't forget you have the choice of making bash the
default /bin/sh.

I've already changed my /bin/sh and I've found very very few
broken/missbehaving scripts.
And as a great pro my boot time is more than 50% faster now, not to mention
that the overall /bin/sh scripts run faster now.
