Pushing that behavior upstream is not always practical these days, where

I agree with Craig here.
we can keep our code "pure" but the standard shell these days for everyone except us is /bin/bash. There is nothing wrong with FreeSBD deciding that an industry standard should be adopted..

While I don't like it when people code stuff at work in bash instead of sh, I have to admit it has a lot of advantages, and I can't really stop them.. It's getting more and more common so to some extent we should probably hide our pride a bit and look at bash (and maybe vim) and giving them better standard support.

mailing the symlink is a really small thing.
