Not like this, because the location of /bin/bash is not guaranteed
and it is quite possible that /bin/sh is working just fine. So,
it would need some kind of extra test of the existence of /bin/bash,
and only do the export if /bin/bash actually exists.

I am bad at shell programming, but if I receive such a patch it
will certainly be added.

Best wishes,
