	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.
