Yeah, I did not mean to say login shell. I am not sure the proper way to phrase
it, so i will just put it like this:

Dash is good for writing scripts, personally I prefer it over Bash. However it
is garbage as an interactive shell. It does not even support readline, and that
is fine because its role is to be a fast shell for scripts.

That is why I did not include it before. I would add that your mail is not on
topic. The point of my email was not "Bash should be the dep", it was "some
shell should be a dep".
