Reading them through myself, I also think I might have been a bit harsh.
I apologize if I have offended anyone.

Being a zsh-head myself, I can answer that one. zsh doesn't even take a
look at /etc/profile, unless you call it as as /bin/sh or /bin/ksh, in
which case you are probably not running it interactively, anyway.

As for other fancy shells, you can be pretty sure they wont like those
bash-prompt-strings either, and they certainly wont have $BASH set.  On
the whole, they should be happy about it, too.
