I completely misread this sentence the first time.  I think calling out
to it from .bashrc is a good plan.  As details change over time, users
have a chance of seeing the changes.  Not that we'll necessarily have
users logging in by a text-console very frequently, so you should
probably keep it as a separate script that we can call out to in .bashrc
and /etc/skel, and so we can weave it into Plinth and friends.

Yeah, that'd be really useful.
