Oh, that reminds me:
i'd really like to see a solution where you have two directories (or
One a set of files, the other a set of symlinks into the first.
it's really nice to be able to add and delete stuff to your system
startup sequence w/o having to add/delete 'stock' system files.
anything that makes me change the 'stock' system startup files --
including deleting them or moving them -- is losing, in my opinion.
