-You certainly considered the following option, but I'm curious about
the rationale for excluding it from the implementation.)
Why don't you do 3 in place of the admin instead of using /usr/local?
If touching /etc/environment is too fragile, could we add some new
mechanism to handle default PATH changes (e.g. /etc/environment.d)?
For example, libnssmdns mangles /etc/nsswitch.conf to add its entries:
this sounds equally intrusive to me.
