Well, if you install your own shared library and your own programs
for using it, you'll also make sure to pass the right -R args.
OTOH, there are a lot of files under /etc where removing them or
altering them in bad ways would cause the corresponding application to
malfunction. In that way, frobbing load-path from /etc/site-start.d/*
is not different.
But the situation that Emacs stops working after "dpkg --purge gnus",
say, MUST be changed.
This line is not blank.
