As I've written in a previous email a switch from debian from bash -> dash won't break scripts on existing installations. If you do there a dist-upgrade sh should still point to bash.. This switch would only affect new installation. And if there is a sysmaint who installs a new system and copy over his existing scripts without testing, ... sorry but this is a case we shouldn't care about. Just my 2c. Greetings Winnie -- .''`.
