The wrong metric imho. There is no way to find what a shell script
needs in order to execute. That is a far bigger need than whatever RPM
has done to bash.

executabledeps.sh would be re-written in a flash if there was some way
to find the information not only for bash (and presumably all sheel  
varinats),
but also for other shells.
