No, we should ask Google to remove all entries that point out .MacOSX/
environment.plist as an acceptable solution. All kidding aside, it is
probably a good idea to put a prominent warning about .MacOSX/
environment.plist in the Wiki. In 10.5 there is no good reason to use
it, even your ssh keys are properly shared without trickery by default.
Aside from that, a warning about altering the path to include items at
the start, thus overriding default commands is a good thing as well.
It is nice to have these tools available, but adding it at the start
of the $PATH is a huge security risk, and one of the reasons I won't
install either MacPorts or Fink.
