:I just discovered /bin/sh is really ash, per /usr/src/bin/sh/TOUR (it
:supports $(( 1 + 2 )) whereas Bourne sh does not), so I was wondering
:should sh be a symlink to ash? I don't even see ash in my PATH.

No, I think its best not to make a link. We already have enough
shell names to deal with, it would just add confusion.
