Thank you for strategically cutting and pasting my text in order to
remove any semblance of meaning.

Have you actually ever tried to build a Unix system with a real,
verifiable TCB?  I have.  What I'm suggesting are things that I know
would make it easier, because I've actually tried it about 10 different
ways over the past 15 years, and I have some recollection of what was
a real pain in the butt and what wasn't, really, all that hard to work

As I pointed out, I have, in fact, built Unix systems with no /bin/sh.
I find it preferable to build systems a little less weird than that if
I can.

I'm not quite sure why you're so angry about this.
