Also I think some people here wrote, that they used dash as /bin/sh for
years without problems.
I personally also prefer dash as /bin/sh, but I dont think the
pacman-trigger approach described in the wiki is a clean way of doing

I dont know the arch packaging a lot, but I think a package which
provides dash as bin/sh would be a cleaner approach.
