I see, when you realize your argument does not hold water, you resort to name
calling. Here are concrete arguments:

1. Debian uses Dash as /bin/sh
2. Ubuntu uses Dash as /bin/sh
3. The POSIX standard defines sh, and by definition Dash is closer to this than
4. Dash is 3-5 times faster than Bash
5. While it might be upsetting to some users, _they_ have made an error in
   assuming Bash is /bin/sh, it would not be our error in switching to a shell
   that is closer to POSIX sh

Now, perhaps you can add a constructive post, or do you want to start with some
"yo momma" jokes?
