Less maintenance than a file sitting in /etc/skel that is automatically
generated when creating users? :) Besides, a symlink limits you. I also
run X-specific aliases and such in my bashrc that either have no effect,
or are undesired, in console.


Government is actually the worst failure of civilized man. There has
never been a really good one, and even those that are most tolerable are
arbitrary, cruel, grasping and unintelligent.
