It's been a couple of weeks. Could someone from -qa make an NMU
incorporating the preinst-from-script-to-binary change?

The full patch (which removed the /bin/sh link, and replaced it in the
postinst, which isn't desirable) is in the -qa list archives, and in the
logs for the applicable RC bugs for bash (#43050, #43096, #36016).
