Well, it's sure sacred, but I think it won't hurt much to put there
one symbolic link, because if you have a network with linux boxen
and other unices, say, Suns, FreeBSD boxen and SGIs, the sysadmin
will probably set users' shells as /usr/local/bin/tcsh.  Or is it
better to document it and the sysadmin will set the link himself?
