Just say *no* to ash?

I've just compiled bash with --enable-minimal-config which is supposed to
produce a /bin/sh-like version of bash. It's about 2.2 times the size of
ash when finished.
While I like the thought of using a small, fast shell for configures I'm
wondering if this is ever going to buy us as much as it loses in lack of
compatibility with a "standard". And, we seem to be constantly fixing
bugs in ash, as well.
Does anyone have an opinion on whether ash should go?
