[Firehol-support] Role of ksh in Firehol

Hi all!

I'm using Debian on my firewall, and so prefer to rely on the packages from 
there, but I just noticed that firehol is in danger of being removed from 
the distribution, now that it is just about to freeze:

I tried to understand the problem, and the problem seems to reside with 
Korn shell (ksh). I went through the scripts, and found ksh only in 
vnetbuild. I have not tried to understand what's up with ksh itself 

However, it seems that ksh only plays a very minor role as one of other 
Y|SH_CMD|/bin/sh|sh bash ksh

So, I'm interested in hearing if simply removing ksh from that line will 
allow ksh to be dropped as a dependency for firehol?
