Following these lines, it's nonsense to maintain some
half-support for non-executable install-sh.  If we don't want to
support this use-case, ${SHELL} should be fully removed from
every call to install-sh.  

And if why stop with install-sh?  Any reason mdate-sh, ylwrap, and
friends should be handled differently than install-sh?

(I'm not being sarcastic here; I just don't care which way the
balance tilts, as long as it clearly tilts.)
