 I think it's "their distro, their rules".  Or, perhaps
"we can measure it, so it _must_ be important".
Remember that some distros are surrounded by
vast numbers of bootscripts.

 In the real world, I believe dash has improved a
lot once they started using it as /bin/sh, but it's
still sufficently different to cause problems, e.g.
in the kernel's build scripts.

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
