I just updated readline and bash in the devel grimoire and while doing
this totally broke my readline install which left me with no working
shell on my system. Luckily i managed to recover from that using a
static busybox i got from a rpm on the web, but it made me wonder why we
don't install a static bash binary in addition to the dynamic one
anymore. I know we used to do that, and I think it's a nice fallback for
such problems. Does anyone remember why we removed that from the bash
