I am not so happy with this solution. Quite often, I say to my
collegues: "Oh, I already solved that, just look at my
.bashrc" (or .emcas or .gnus or .whatever...")

I would need to make sure that all these pieces are in ~/.public. This
is clearly doable, but imposes more work on me and other users; it is a
bit more restrictive than I would like.
