I'm perfectly aware of this solution, which I believe is the worst
one. I do NOT want to replicate my long .cshrc file in a XML
file. Moreover, I define many aliases, and have many conditional
statements that would get lost in this way. I really want that my
.cshrc complex script is eventually loaded, since this is what I
expect from it, and this is what is written in the documentation of
any tcsh of the world.
