I see two naive approaches here: append said $PATH unconditionally, or walk through each component and only append those who aren't in $PATH already. Not sure how reliable it would be to split current $PATH using ':' as a separator, in case there are some funnily-named, maybe-quoted directories in there. I'm happy to receive hints here.
