OK, this is for some personal configuration management.  Not as part of
a product you're deploying, etc.  As such, presumably you are not trying
to trick yourself into breaking your own logins or shell startups.  So,
just check for $BASH_VERSION and you should be all right.

Though, if it were me, I'd just simplify everything.  Don't use so many
different shells, don't use such complicated aliases that you have to
have multiple versions of them....
