This is VERY bad. It blindly replaces /etc/shells, which was
altered/changed to my needs, and it caused my login-shell to be removed
from the list of valid shells.

Imagine what this would do on a large system

Or a system that deliberately removed shells from that list

I for one was very unpleasantly surprised
