Actually, bash does. But as of my most recent build, it only ensures that
/dev/stdin and friends exist (hmm, I haven't validated whether that still
works with /etc/fstab...). In other words, now that /bin/sh is unpacked
prior to any postinstall scripts, it no longer matters whether other
packages' postinstalls run before or after bash, unless their postinstall
wants to use /dev/stdin (unlikely).
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
