Neither of which need to be.
/etc/environment is not some configuration file for mysthical PAM
internals but a place to set *arbitrary* environment variables for
all sessions using pam_env, including ssh, login, xdm, ...
NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
