I don't think it's annoying. I feel annoyed bu many distros expecting
/bin/sh to be bash, bringing up meny incompatibilities with FreeBSD and
Solaris. I'm for complete replacing of bash with dash, making dash essential
(and bash not essential) and I've used dash (and ash, which was its previous
name) since I've found it in debian distribution...

I think that bash is bloatware.
