Description of problem:
It would be really useful if the RPM would create a symlink
from /bin/bash to /bin/rbash, which enables the restricted bash
I'm guessing that /etc/shells should also be updated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The problem is that although rbash does restrict things quite a lot, you are
still probably going to want /bin in your path -- and if it is, then you can
just run 'bash' and get out of restricted mode that way.
I think it's more useful for chroots than in the RPM we actually ship for bash.
