It's quite possible that the *BSD sh has been improved since someone
from Debian ported it to Linux and called it "ash", more than three
years ago:

} This is a very simple port of ash taken from NetBSD-current on
} 1997/06/18.  The file setmode.c was taken from src/libc/gen and is
} needed since the Linux libc does provide getmode(3) or setmode(3).
} History editing is disabled to avoid code bloat.  This also means that
} building the package is possible without the BSD libedit.

The man page looks just the same as the NetBSD sh(1) man page I found
online, though.
