that isnt how Gentoo has been handling it ... that patch falls back to reading 
both /etc/inputrc *and* ~/.inputrc ...

we've been using the policy of:
      1. the filename used for the previous call
      2. the value of the shell variable `INPUTRC'
      3. ~/.inputrc
      4. /etc/inputrc
which makes more sense to me ... if you want your ~/.inputrc to also use 
the /etc/inputrc, then you should use an include directive yourself in 
~/.inputrc rather than it always being forced ...
