Anything that depends on bash as /bin/sh is already getting Fedora
specific.  Debian/Ubuntu don't use bash as /bin/sh for years, and none
of the other major Unix-like systems (e.g. *BSD, Solaris, etc.) have
ever used bash as /bin/sh.

To say "it is a lot of work" or "is going to break the world", the
requirement for proof is on you.
