Hi, I support this.  On top of it I would like to drop the debconf
question from the dash package, and install a /bin/sh symlink
unconditionally.  If bash should optionally be installed as /bin/sh, a
similar config mechanism could be added to the bash package, and/or a
better solution found than a diversion of /bin/sh.  Cc: mksh maintainer
