[SM-Discuss] bash_profile and bashrc . . .

I've been doing a little system maintenance this morning and running into a
couple of quirks I thought I'd bring up to see if they are bugs that should
be addressed or not.
The first thing is in the .bash_profile, our /etc/skel version (and $HOME
versions as well) have the following snippet:
root at tbird:~# cat /etc/skel/.bash_profile
If our Source Mage systems are supposed to have a /usr directory that is free
of a local directory, shouldn't those PATHs also be free of /usr/local paths?
If that is a bug, which component shall I file it against?
The second thing is that in my /root directory, .bashrc is a copy
of .bash_profile rather than a link to it. In my /home/jason and in
my /etc/skel, those files are links. Is that a bug or by design? If it is a
bug, what component should I file it against?
