Well, tacking into account that all *LFS books have in their host
prerequisites that Bash must be available and that must be the shell used by
the builder user to set-up a sane environment, I don't see a real need to do
But if you are willing to make such patch keeping availbables all current
jhalfs features and extensions I will be happly aplying it.
