Agreed.  My point was that bash is not all that popular on
debian/ubuntu for accounts that would be running public facing
services that would be processing user defined input (www-data,
cgi-bin, list, irc, lp, mail, etc).  Sure some non-privileged user
could host their own cgi script on >:1024, but that's not really a
critical "stop the presses!!" upgrade issue, imho.
