I filed issue 5047 <http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=5047> when
I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 from 10.04. The problem revolves around the fact
that, by default, 10.10 installs byobu <https://launchpad.net/byobu> which
contains it's own /usr/bin/shell.

According to the docs, shell is a "Simple command line shell". While this
might be very useful for sh support on windows, linux provides sh support in
every distro. Is there a use for shell to someone using dmd that I am not
aware of? If not, can this be removed from the deb/rpm for future releases?

Thanks
-Mike
