Hi Ken,

While I think it's a good idea to point out that they are (will be) unset
in the users .bashrc I'm not sure it's a good idea to tell people where
the default (/etc/defaults/etc/skel/.bashrc) is, since this will be
overwritten by the base package.  If people want to maintain their own set
of changes which is used in future that the package does not overwrite
/etc/skel/.bashrc is what they should edit.  However, since the skel files
are only copied *once* ~/.bashrc should be the first point of call.

Hope that makes sense!

Good point.

I agree. A revised patch is attached.
