Yes it does contain bashism. Moreover the uploader is written in Perl.
Please tell me if this is a problem for an inclusion in Debian.

I didn't know that writing a program in Bash was a policy violation...

Anyway, if a DD tell me that he will sponsor it if I remove bashism, I
might work on that topic, even though I don't see where the problem is
with writting bash software, for people who can run bash.
