In my opinion, it's time to change master.passwd.  /bin/csh is just no

I agree.

And almost all of the scripts in the system are implemented with /bin/sh,
so having the default shell be something that can actually run (pieces of)
those would be nice.

What does the selected shell of an account have to do with in which language a bunch of scripts are written in?
