I'm inclined that way, but I'd like to hear some other opinions.  I 
don't really think we need to target users who don't have root access.  
Anyway, our users should be knowledgeable enough to figure out that they 
need to put the environment variriables in ~/.bash_profile if they don't 
have root.
