I wouldn't exaggerate. Most bash scripts don't use bashisms and could
just as well be “good ol' sh” scripts as you like to call them, though I
don't personallly see what so “good” in them, mostly just the “ol'” bit.
Bash programming is a bit smelly anyhow, though useful.

As to whether bashisms cause (are result of?) particular braindamage is
a matter of debate, that this list isn't probably suitable for.
