No brace expansion for ash?

I recently installed busybox's ash to test it as a viable alternative to 
bash and i discovered that it doesn't interpret brace expansion as the 
tiny hush does...

When do you plan to resolve this little shameful problem?

So what the best alternative to bash in busybox? ash or hush?

For me, ash with reverse history search and brace expansion will be 
almost perfect.

Thank you and sorry for my english...
