This is the approach I took at my previous employer.  It's simple,
works with packages, and people who hate adding things to /bin can avoid
doing so.

As the person who ported variant symlinks to FreeBSD I can't image how
they could be useful here.  If you need a /bin/bash you need to put a
file system object there (or I supposed hack namei).  Variant symlinks
only allow files to point to different things in different contexts.
