Should we deviate from fink policy and get ready to provide a zsh 
replacement for 10.0 and 10.1 users? for testing purposes and for if 
people do not upgrade to 10.2, the packages will still work? we could 
call it like nozsh-bash-2.xx or something, because it seems that if it 
builds for zsh, it wont be right for bash, and vice-versa.
