Many of these bugs have already been fixed.  

Reading through bug 18918, Azarah's comments seem perfectly reasonable
to me, so I think the author of that message was a bit harsh. 
Lindstrom's last comment on that bug does seem fairly clear, but I'm
wondering if his proposed fix will break /etc/profile for the zsh (and
any other fancy *sh that might exist that I don't know anything about)? 
I do agree that we should try to prevent our /etc/profile from breaking
people's prompts, but I don't want people to lose the distinctive Gentoo
eye-candy, either.

Anybody thoughts?
