single-source startup file (/etc/csh.cshrc - like behavior)

Greetings.  Not sure this is really a bug, but...

I am looking for a way to get bash to duplicate the behavior of
csh/tcsh with respect to /etc/csh.cshrc, that is, a way to get every
bash invocation to execute the same system-wide startup file, without
having to modify a per-user-owned file (e.g. ~/.bashrc) for each user,
since (a) that's inelegant (or at least yucky :), and (b) users could
just delete the modification and/or the file, and That Would Be Bad.

As far as I can tell, there isn't currently a way to do this.

This is a feature I (as an admin) would find very useful (read: consider

If there is currently a way to do this, I would *love* to hear about it.

If there isn't, it would be great if this functionality could be
incorporated into bash.

Please Cc: me with any replies - I'm not a member of the list (haven't
needed it until now :)
