And that's nothing to scoff at- I believe you could call it a 'best practice' to keep your servers as lean as possible on the application installations. If you can accomplish what you need with what's already installed... then do so.

The other thing is that the rest of the OBSD community (as a whole, anyway) uses the default KSH... so you would be in better company using KSH instead.
