template.SlackBuild actually includes a function.  Not to split hairs
(or un-split them), but sh on GNU/Linux is bash:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     4 2008-12-11 10:45 sh -> bash

So you can use any bash-specific features with #!/bin/sh.  These will
only be run on Slackware right?  Sh-compatibility is mainly a
portability concern, and nobody's going to run a SlackBuild on FreeBSD
or HP-UX are they?
