Rsh works perfectly well with any and every shell.

With ksh and its clones though there are better ways of setting up a
per-user specified environment, just as with csh....

The reason is of course that csh and ksh have a default way of reading a
script specified by the environment variable ENV, which has a default
value specified at compile time....

(in pdksh you have to define DEFAULT_ENV at compile time to enable a
default ENV script....)

Perhaps 'rc' could use a similar technique.
