Ah, I got confused by Launchpad again.

I guess I could source /etc/profile and ~/.profile in an .xsessionrc.  I
dislike having to maintain a number of dotfiles (I used to have an
.xinitrc in the past and was content to remove it in favor of automatic
configuration and autostart files) for what looks like the same one
thing in my mind (setting up some environment variables), but I can live
with it.
