Suppose i'll compile tcsh staticly and install the bin in /bin
and adjust /etc/shells to add /bin/tcsh in there.
I'll change the root shell in vipw to put /bin/tcsh in there
as well.. works fine.
However, any reasons which i dont see right now that is
why i shouldnt do this or why this is a bad idea?
Perhaps for security reasons its not that a good idea, for tsch
is bigger then sh and so will theoreticly contain more bugs
and therefore more potential security issues.
But other then that .. i have the feeling i am missing some arguments here?
