I think the argument has gotten lost. We shouldn't be debating whether
these things should be loaded or not. The issue is -where- they are
loaded. Either the standard location or some make believe script that
isn't part of standard operation.

Of course they should be loaded by default. Who wants to see Arch Linux
become LFS+pacman? Nobody I think.
