I've long since (circa 1994 or so) had a script called set_path that I 
can source to set my path from scratch. My ~/.bashrc calls it. I can add 
on different directories as required from my various clients. 
Directories only get added to the path if they exist.

Now why can't you do similar? It would not be "changing a file that is 
not supposed to be changes" rather it would be changing files that you 
own and that should be changed.

It's your environment - take control of it!
