If that's the only reason, then why not install a shell who's only
intention is to be POSIX compliant like dash or posh. They're much
smaller (nearly 5x, not stripped). Plus, you could help me identify
rogue bashisms in POSIX scripts :)

$ ls -l /bin/bash /bin/dash /bin/posh
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1438810 2007-03-12 09:58 /bin/bash
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  284168 2007-02-20 16:37 /bin/dash
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  317591 2007-02-22 13:51 /bin/posh
