Interesting. I am not convinced that we should do so (because many
people put stuff into ~/.bash_profile and expect it not to be executed
often, or executed only for console shells).

How do other maintainers handle this? aterm, rxvt, xterm do not use it,
and I would like to know whether we have some kind of convention.
