So why do we have site-start.el and site-lisp/default.el ?

I have a my own personal PC running GNU/Linux.  Nobody else uses it.
Yet, I run it as different users for different purposes.

The easiest way for me to ensure that all these "pseudo users"
have the same emacs setup is to use site-start.el FOR ME AND ONLY ME.

So, it's not "people" doing that -- it's "me".

Excuse me, but that is SILLY!!  Please don't do that!

Don't we have better things to do?

And what exactly do you intend to change?  Enabling cua-mode,
viper-mode, delete-selection-mode, pc-selection-mode, glasses-mode,
.. any minor mode?
