Then you have to wrestle with the question of POSIX shell versus Bash
extensions.  ;-) Both are in use but you'll find that in Debian many
Bashisms have been removed from system scripts in recent years.  Debian
now uses dash for the system shell which would probably be a good
candidate to test system scripts against.  User shells still default to
Bash although Zsh and others are available.
