Well, it has been a while since I last reacted to a suggestion like  
this, but let's add to this that if you do this you run additional  
risks both in terms of functionality and security on your system.

Maybe the last version of i-Installer should, as a security/stability  
measure, refuse to run when you have this environment.plist file (Just  
kidding ;-).
