Sorry for hijacking on $PATH, but...
If you want to play around with $PATH in .bashrc or the like sourced script,
use this function or something equally careful:

# adds one path to $PATH and checks if it isn't already in there
addpath() {
	[[ "$PATH" == *$1* ]] || export PATH="$PATH:$1"

unless, of course, you fancy ending up with a crazy long $PATH
(in the .bashrc case) or it's going to break in other ways...
