I say that standardizing _some_ things in these files would be wise..
Such things as a standardized prompt, putting the current path in the path
for regular users (not root).. I'm sure there would be a few other things.
You can't standardize these files too much as different distro's will
handle them differently...

This would be nice... BS and Del are presently something that drives me
insane... this is one of those things from dos that I miss.. the ability
to go from app to app and have the piece of mind that these two keys will
behave... one must remember that a large amount of the "new userbase" is
coming from windows.
The other things are beyond my talents at the moment.. ;-) Back to
