Damn, but I wish this hadn't been turned into a discussion verging on a
flame war about shells!
Let's ditch sh completely, and convert NetBSD to use rc internally, and
provide a couple of free shells as add-on's!
But seriously folks, Ash is a perfectly good shell, and POSIX compliant,
or not, I'm not going to give it up, regardless of what might be shipped
as /bin/sh on NetBSD in the future.
Also, I will *NOT* use bash. If anything, I'd use zsh.
