I have the following in my config:

     I really like org-babel to use zsh
     #+begin_src emacs-lisp
       (setq org-babel-sh-command "zsh")

It is apparently not possible to set this variable via #+BIND: to only
change this for one code block, at least I did not succeed to do so in
my attempts to do so -- but maybe I just didn't read enough of the
documentation to /get it right/.

I don't know, if zsh||bash instead of sh breaks any assumptions org-mode
makes about the environment in which sh code blocks are executed; up
until now it works like a charm.

Kind regards,
