FS#173 - Switch to Bash 3

Bash 2 syntax has been the norm for most versions (although broken in some).

So far none of the major distributions is using bash 2, bash 4 is already gold but not widely-used enough.

Only a few special purpose/minimal distros like DSL retain bash 2.05b, but vcs requires recent versions of ImageMagick, Mplayer and FFmpeg anyway. I can’t see a reason to retain such backwards compatibility.

1.12.3 will start the switch to separate it from other major changes in 1.13.
