I haven't got to that yet, I'll be looking at that soon. Hopefully when I am 
finished the work I have planned, spdconf will no longer be needed in the 
majority of cases.

One rule in Ubuntu and Debian packaging, is that we don't touch any user home 
directories. There is no other way that I know of, to ensure the environment 
variable gets set on all logins. On Ubuntu, that shell fragment does get run 
even when logging into an X session.

I thought that some people building from source, or some distros, may not want 
this enabled. I can easily just enable it by default if there is concensus to 
do so.

THanks for your questions and feedback.
