The place I got that from said that you could put them in a user's own profile
file if you wanted them to be for one user only. I haven't tested that, and
I can't remember the details.
I'm not clear why you object to putting it in /etc/profiles? I shan't be
using it myself very often - but I just wanted it to work, and by the
simplest (for me) method.
