No, you just were not thinking of what Doug McNutt wrote. It's the  
traditional UNIX way to build up PATH and other environment variables  
step-by-step. The system sets in /etc a first start. Then you can  
amend the variables. And you have a few options doing this, in login  
shells, for interactive sessions, in non-interactive script runs –  
for things I can't imagine!

Reading from ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist allows to forget all this.

It's the centralised structure: from one central point 26 régions  
with 100 département are ruled. (Other countries have a federal  
structure like in good old UNIX ...)

do not show him your poem.
