just a reminder for anyone: if a directory is not already in
$PATH then it's annoying to change $PATH; older shell
sessions won't be updated automatically with the new $PATH,
at least. Makes it a little harder to give the user advice
on what to do, in the cases in which we have to resort to
merely giving advice.
