And what's more don't you have to be careful not to do things like
putting statements in these init files that generate *any* output if
they might get executed by a non-login shell? Otherwise couln't they
screw up things like rsh.
It sound's like this mechanism could cause a lot of trouble without
many substantial benefits.
