That means that it needs to find a .profile vs. a .login, or whatever.  Or perhaps this means the app should query to find out which shell the user has enabled by default, and find the correct file that way?  In which case we should specify the correct way to do that perhaps?  

Ugh. We should just standardize /etc/profile.d or the like.
