Hey, my rc did away with the system-wide rcrc implied in Duff's
paper.

All I'm saying is that you don't necessarily want .rcrc to run via rsh --
there might be stuff in there that depends on an interactive shell. Hence
the suggestion that a different mechanism be used.

That being said, I like to use stricter rules for my personal .rcrc:
it is idempotent, so I can always issue ". .rcrc" and be sure there
won't be any nonsense in my environment.

Byron.
