Which package creates /etc/environment?

Because 'dpkg -S' can't find it.

And more to the point, what's looking at that file?  It isn't my login shell,
it isn't any of the setup files that it looks at (.bashrc and so forth).
But the variables in that file are getting set somehow, and I'd like to
know how, and what's going to someday break if it gets removed.

Behind everything some further thing is found, forever; thus the tree behind
the bird, stone beneath soil, the sun behind Urth.  Behind our efforts, let
there be found our efforts.
