But what if the user isn't using bash, but tcsh? Or if they have a
.bash_profile? Or if they source their .bashrc via their .profile and
set their PYTHONPATH in there? There's a lot that could go wrong.
The second approach sounds much more robust and is the more conventional
approach. Hopefully you can get it to do what you want.
