Hi Branden,

Thanks for your attention.

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
    . $HOME/.Xenvironment
This way your update to /etc/X11/Xsession will be properly done when
"apt-get upgrade".

If you still feel like vomiting, I do not know any good cure.
