[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#395890: Intent to remove /usr/bin/X11 from PATH in /etc/login.defs

Up to now, we had this in the default /etc/login.defs file (provided
by the login package):

# *REQUIRED*  The default PATH settings, for superuser and normal users.
# (they are minimal, add the rest in the shell startup files)
ENV_SUPATH      PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11
ENV_PATH        PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games

This was reported against "general" initially, then finally reassigned
to login. As this happened in October 2006, while the base system was
frozen, we decided to go the safe way and make this change after etch.

So, the time has come.

Are there any objections to us changing this setting in the default
/etc/login.defs file?
