I've been happily using Fish as my default shell (defined in `/etc/passwd`)
for years! First on Debian, then on Parabola/Arch. And everything has
been perfectly fine so far.

Thanks! The Arch community has **really** done a great job with its wiki!
Unfortunately, calling Fish from Bash is not really sexy! This is what I
do on systems where I cannot set my default shell and I don't like to have to
do one extra ctrl+d to close a terminal. ^_^'
