I'd rather people just use !/bin/bash if they absolutely need it.
Ubuntu made a switch for a reason - extreme speed up in boot time
(amongst others) which I think is an important enough aspect of
something booted from DVD or USB stick.

We've done pretty good so far not needing to use BASH though and I think
we can still manage without it. Not to say I haven't thought about
starting some python scripts to do certain things.
