Replace /bin/sh with a very basic sh interpreter and keep so ksh only
gets called for interactive use.

I set the options in /etc/shrc

# start /etc/shrc
case $- in *i*)
	alias ls="ls -F"
	case $0 in *ksh)
		set -o emacs
		bind ^I="complete-list"
	if [ -f ~/.shrc ]; then
		. ~/.shrc
# end /etc/shrc

and I put 'export ENV=/etc/shrc' in /etc/profile

Dunno how other ppl do it.
