... but people who want to make their own .psqlrc can't?  At least not
till it occurs to them to unset PSQLRC?  I don't really see the use-case
here.  James' stated problem of setting a default search_path could be
handled at least as effectively through either PGOPTIONS or server-side
GUC settings (postgresql.conf, or per-user or per-database variable

I'm not averse to inventing PSQLRC if there's actually some case it
solves better than any of our existing mechanisms.  But so far it seems
like a solution desperately in search of a problem.
