If they are merely programs, why are they being invoked at
startup? I would posit that the ``program'' part of the file belongs
in with the package propoer, and the invocation, which can be
overridden is the only thing that should be in /etc/emacs*/site-start.d
Sounds like a failure of the developer to partition the
configuration from the non config parts.
