Hmm, but this is even more horrible and is undocumented. I have
the developer tools installed, but a spotlight search turns up nothing.
A google search points to an article in ADC. Environment variable
expansion does not occur, it is only for a single user, you have to
logoff and logon to see your changes,... I could go on and on. It
wouldn't be hard to write a shell script that
would generate environment.plist at logon, but that seems to be
re-inventing the wheel. We must be missing something.
