As we talked with nckx yesterday on IRC, from my point of view, it is
impolite to install stuff behind the user.  Well, to be concrete, I
suggest either: a) add a comment in the Warning Note in the manual
saying that /etc/profile.d and shell competitions will be installed or
b) ask a global question in about these.  WDYT?
I do not have a strong opinion and the patch doing what you are both
suggesting is ready. ;-)

All the best,
