On my system /bin/sh is a symlink to /bin/bash and behaves similarly.
But on other systems it may be a symlink to other shells or may be a
native posix shell implementation.  Or on some systems trying to be
antiquated it may be a classic Bourne shell.  Many posix shell
implementations are based upon the AT&T ksh.  On the systems I tested
they all behaved like bash does here.
