Indeed, Lintian doesn't depend on dash or posh, and will find this problem
only if /bin/sh is one of the pickier shells.
Actually, since your program can run on a number of shells which
implement common extensions, this raises the question what's the
proper way to mark that.

It is :)

And it now works on the console! Cool!
Just as a note for the other reviewers:
on many terminals, some of bashish themes don't work well, miss some
glyphs, etc. This kind of things is impossible to detect -- at least
not in any portable or semi-portable way. And termcap/terminfo are
just bad jokes.
I found only a number of very minor things:
1. a typo:
Bashish is now removed from your
user account. However, it is still
availiable system-wide, consult your
package manager on how to completely
2. debian/dirs spuriously lists /usr/sbin
3. neither config.guess nor config.sub are used -- you can save
nearly 10% of your source size by axing them away
Worth fixing in your private tree, but not warranting a new release
