I think this was a result of the whole yahoo about shells a bit back..
The one that ended with entrance executing the chosen environment
directly, and not run it by /bin/sh or /bin/bash

Personally, the ~9MB out of 2GB the entrance process is hogging is
negligible, but still wasted RAM..

For those of us who wish to run e17 on a 64MB (or 32MB) RAM handheld
this is a big difference.
