It is not gratuitous. 'ash' is now 'dash' instead of 'bash'. Dash is a

Huh? ash was never bash, and ash.exe was part of the dash package last
I checked, so I'm confused by the above statement.
Yes, poor wording on my part. I meant 'sh', which I suppose isn't particularly
interesting in this thread. In any case, my point to the OP is that the change
of 'ash' coming from the 'dash' package was intentional and for a good reason
(i.e. to provide a better 'ash' than we've had in the past).
