15 Yes, Will you provide a migration phase?
17 That means, can you put busybox-shell to auto-conflict sash and
18 link /bin/sash to /bin/busybox-sh or what the binary is called?
20 Oh, and unless you have another editor as binary built into your shell,
21 don't remove ed. A "trusted" editor is good. Sash is seldom used for
22 "My system is haxxored" however its often used for "I fucked up glibc"
23 and an editor is a handy thing, even if its as obscure as "ed"
25 Otherwise, I'd suggest this is a "default change" for rather
26 than a replacement "right now".
