Description of Problem:
Some init scripts use #!/bin/bash while many others similiar work with /bin/sh.
This makes a less abstract dependency to bash. I'm not sure if there's bashisms
there somewhere but it would be nice to have a simpler net of dependencies and
more cinsistency.

This is because the $"..." localization method requires bash.
