I can't see a consensus reached in this discussion. Yet, a request to
put /bin/sh under control of update-alternatives is on the way to
Factory. So just creating facts.

That creates a dependency loop, though. Managing the core shell
through alternatives is nuts because it'll break things for stateless
things, require a scriptlet engine to run the program, and the
scriptlet engine isn't configured yet because alternatives isn't set

The loop is only there because of the post install section of
update-alternatives. Somebody needs to implement that in lua ;)
