Re: Should we implement a /etc/profile.d?
I think we shouldn't. Programs should have intelligent defaults.
This method will bring about many problems with conflicting variables
and slow startup time.
You are perhaps analyzing this issue from a single-user machine
perspective. Consider a large system with practically every package
installed. Each user only uses a small minority of available
programs, but their environment is polluted with hundreds of
extraneous environment variables.
