Moving bash from essential/required to important?


bash is not the default system shell anymore. It's now only the default
user shell. As such it is not required for a sysadmin to boot and
install software. Besides that some users would like to get rid of bash
in their environment which is obviously not easily done atm.

The most obvious reason to not degrade bash to Priority: important is
obviously that one needs to declare a dependency on bash when it's used
in a package. Which means quite some packages will need to be changed.

What do others think of moving bash to important (required and important
are part of the base system)?
