Of course you do not like such intrusive action to your script. (I was
just describing general idea.)

No, no, no.... I will not do this when I implement. I respect your
finely written script and use the modular interface you provided. How
about creating file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/00xfree86-common_environment:
if [ -f "$HOME/.Xenvironment" ]; then
This way your update to /etc/X11/Xsession will be properly done when
If you still feel like vomiting, I do not know any good cure.
