Well, debian already ships with rc and es.  But maybe there's a better
way of doing this.

The ideal thing would be a shell script used for *all* logins, which
kicks in before the user shell is loaded.  This means changing
login, and xdm, to use something like this:

	char*pat=". /etc/login.sh; exec -l %s";
		if (!buf) {
			perror("sorry, out of memory, try again later");
		sprintf(buf, pat, shell);
		exec("/bin/bash", "-c", buf);

where shell is from /etc/passwd (field 7).
