I infer from the existence of sbase and ubase that the other
alternatives that already exist (e.g. busybox, toybox, GNU) are
considered too full of suck. Is that right?

I would guess that the GNU utilities are considerd too bloated. What
are the perceived shortcomings of busybox and toybox? What about Plan 9
from User Space?
