  It all depends on what you want to accomplish in your finish script,
of course. But there's no reason why it should be difficult: finish
scripts are essentially cleanup duties, and should be about the same
order of complexity as run scripts. So, yes, fairly easy.

  Note, however, than unlike run scripts, you're not likely to spawn
hundreds of finish scripts at the same time. So resource consumption
isn't a real problem, and removing a /bin/sh dependency in finish
scripts is purely artistic at that point, so don't make it a priority. ;)
