Ok, so now that I think of it, that might not actually work when it is not
run by me.  I guess that it all confirms that it works in Bash, but I think
when it runs on its own it would use Dash...

So I would need to put the function in .profile then, right?  Could I leave
it in both .bashrc and .profile so it'd work either way?
