Apparent bash-ism in bootscripts

I've just started trying out ash as /bin/sh, because my reading of BLFS
said it was Bourne shell compliant.  Pain with
/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/if{down,up} which call /bin/sh instead of
/bin/bash ('source' isn't understood).  Should I file a bug, or am I
misunderstanding what a real Bourne shell can and can't do ?

This is a job for Riviera Kid!
