Interesting, I just created a new user to see what it would create and
it appears as if there is no ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile for new
users.  So if you have either one, then you must have created it for
yourself.  Very odd, I would have expected OS X to create one of the
two by default (even if it was just a skeleton).
