You do this once. For ever. Or until you change the set of  
directories with programmes. When you've done this setting, then  
you've created the one and only standard in your system. From then on  
everything can be derived from the standard. For example:

	export PATH=`defaults read "${HOME}/.MacOSX/environment" PATH`

Is it now clear? No chase after a zillion of files that set this or  
that or something different. ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist is something  
like Paris (France) is for France.
