I was under the impression that this could be accomplished for all
shells at once simply by releasing an updated base-files package, but
apparently tcsh does not participate in this convention and includes its
default startup files with the shell itself instead.  So yes, it's not
quite as easy as dropping a new file in profile.d.  (But that's okay, I
really only mentioned it as a startup time optimization.)
