If someone wants to follow my notes in reply to Corinna and create a
shell defaults package, that would be great. AFAIK all distro's generate
a very simply prompt for you, and then leave it up to you.
Setup.exe can leave this aside for the moment (see the other email), and
once a package is in place we can strip out the etc_profile code.
