I'll have to agree on the system defaults. Users can change them as
needed (and as allowed). I use /etc/profile and vimrc as well. I have a
one-user machine as I think it's been speculated most here do. No since
having multiple .bash_profile's and .vimrc's sitting in home
directories, unless they need to be there. Now, to figure out how to
clear the screen at logout system-wide (without .bash_logout and with
out the escape characters in /etc/issue). Maybe an alias in
alias exit='clear && exit'
alias logout='clear && exit'
