I was looking at /etc/profile.d/ and was not sure how it was to function.

As per LSB 4.0, every script present in /etc/profile.d/ is executed.

I am thinking of a way to have a system wide shell variable that can be
used and updated by
further newer shell processes.

Like, if I do an `export FOO="bar"` in /etc/profile.d/foo.sh, is it okay
to assume that $FOO will be available
throughout the OS as a system variable ?
Currently, on sid, it does not seem to be executed.
