I'd find this acceptable if reviewers *vow* not to let another shell
providing a "/bin/sh" alternative enter the official factory repo for
some time to come (a year, say).

That would open up the possibility for adventurous people to experiment
with other shells in their projects, without overriding factory's bash
package. Then, if someone can prove that their project is doing well
and perhaps even build times are reduced because of the faster speed of
their alternative shell, we could re-evaluate the whole thing.
