Re: [Attn: base-files maintainer] Changing /etc/profile to add more shell-dependent settings

Sourcing that script would actually belong into /etc/bash.bashrc if I
understand correctly what this is supposed to do.  Unfortunaltely there
is no infrastructure set up to do this yet in bash.bashrc and simply
changing the file makes it non-upgradeable.  OTOH what I see there on my
Linux system is far too complicated for Cygwin, I'll have to think about
this some more.

No, that should indeed be left to the user.
