Change default shell for several users

chsh is great when you need to change default login shell for a lot of users.
Something like:

for f in $(grep home /etc/passwd | grep -v ftp | cut -d':' -f1) ; do
chsh -s /bin/sh $f ; 

You would of course have to refine the grep line to sort out accounts you don’t want to change default login shell for .
