Um, having packages modify /etc/profile is an extremely bad idea. There's simply too many things that can go wrong. Even just the security considerations (root uses /etc/profile too!) are considerable. Besides, it doesn't help people not using a Bourne shell derivative. It's better to provide it in /usr/doc/mc/examples, and put a pointer to it in /usr/doc/mc/README.debian (or whatever). -- Please read <http://www.iki.fi/liw/mail-to-lasu.html> before mailing me.
