Even if it were not a hack, and not significantly slower, it would still
be completely unacceptable because it will break just about every
user-written shell script (not to mention perl script, python script,
yadda yadda).  There is no advantage to this change that is worth the
amount of pain you are proposing to inflict on end users.  What you'll
probably mostly accomplish is to drive people away from Fedora and into
distributions that have more respect for their users' time.
