/bin/sh and ash, bash

I noticed that Debian makes /bin/sh a symlink to /bin/bash by default.
I'd rather have /bin/sh link to /bin/ash.  I tried this quite a while
ago, and it seems as though some Debian-specific scripts rely on /bin/sh
actually being bash.  In other words, last time I linked /bin/sh to
/bin/ash, a few things got broken.

I was just curious if anyone knew whether or not it's "safe" to link
/bin/sh to /bin/ash?
