I have always thought one of Emacs' best selling points was that it
provides a consistent environment across nearly all operating systems.
That, at least, was a huge draw for me: I can start up Emacs on
Windows, without modification, and lose none of its functionality.

The change you are proposing takes the emphasis away from Emacs, and
puts it on GNU/Linux.  Since we are talking about Emacs, why all the
hoopla about GNU/Linux?

I chose the defaults I did so that Eshell would behave similarly on
all platforms.  I ask that you please not change such an excellent
design philosophy now.
