I agree that having --with-bootstrap-shell=foo or something like that
seems better than having --with-dash and others.

I don't think you were suggesting removing pdksh bootstrap support now,
just to align the new changes to make that more sensible later.  But in
case you did mean that, I think it's too late in the branch cycle to
start discussing removing anything in the infrastructure.
