Yes. I tend to run commands straight from ROX-Filer's shell minibuffer
occasionally; also, I would like to be able to use an alias as my Rox
download manager (although, it would probably make more sense to use a
proper envvar for that, which would have the useful side effect of
actually working :)).

I already have that line in, if only because the default non-login
prompt annoys me :)
