I have a number of users with /bin/false as their shell, but I have
/bin/false in /etc/shells.  The sanitizer works for them just fine.

Does the sanitizer use the specified shell, or does it just make sure 
there's a 'legit' shell?

The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them to
choose from.
