	But that leaves me updating multiple .bashrc files (root, david, testacct1,
etc..) on each box. If you just symlink them, they are there for all -- no
editing involved. However, that does touch on a good point. Currently, I'm
working on a modular .bashrc setup that does something like this in .bashrc:

# . ~/scr/bash/brc-Arch.sh
# . ~/scr/bash/brc-suse.sh
# . ~/scr/bash/brc-ssh.sh

where, for example, brc-Arch.sh would hold Arch specific functions and aliases.
It's just a matter of free time needed to collect all the various .bashrc files
I have from all the boxes and do it....
