Manually replace /bin/sh as a symlink to /bin/dash and then set the
NoUpgrade = usr/bin/sh
NoExtract = usr/bin/sh
Note: I assumed NoExtract should have been enough since the symlink
usr/bin/sh -> usr/bin/bash exists in the bash package, but NoUpgrade
alone creates the symlink, and NoExtract alone removes the existing
symlink, leaving nothing in its wake. Use at your own risk, because this
WILL break packages expecting /bin/sh to be bash and probably other things.
