You have some point here. Given the large number of systems out there
that "do it wrong", I think we need some kind of "out-of-the-box"
solution here. Its not a big thing anyways. The question is: Can we do
this at some central point, or do we call a wrapper script, or is the
in-place path extension less ugly than those two. :)
