Hmm, one thing I forgot to ask about this :
does anyone know how the Arch installer handle this?

It doesn't install all packages twice, does it?
Or maybe sh and its dependencies don't have any scriptlets?
Or if they do, maybe they can be first installed with --noscriptlet, and
then only install everything?
That is :
1) pacman -S --noscriptlet bash
2) pacman -S base
