 I agree with that, it's only that if we have lots of small python files it
 gets harder to find stuff in the shell. What about having a
 shellprofile.py module instead?

 Hmm, I think the default should be taken from the gconf defaults and not
 be hardcoded, so a deployment can override it at will. It also helps to
 provide documentation about the options.
