whatever the default sh is (bash), debian's policy says that init.d
etc shell scripts must not use any bash-isms. i.e. they must be
POSIX-compliant so they will work if you replace /bin/sh with
but that only applies to debian packages, not to whatever you write for
 i doubt if anyone actually does that or cares any more. there arent
many (any?) systems being built where the extra disk-space, memory etc
used by bash compared to ash actually make any difference at all.
