} I beg to disagree. Emacs's initialization is quite a bit simpler
Superficially, you're correct. In practice, every autoloaded feature
does its own initialization at the time it's loaded, and any serious
user employs numerous hook functions and eval-after-load and so on to
interleave his own adjustments to that intialization.
Even for the simple case, though, there's system init both before and
after ~/.emacs ... but you can disable the "after" one, which is what
I've been saying should be possible with zsh too.

} These sound like ad-hoc hacks that more or less work in some specific cases.
} Very far from the kind of things you'd want to put in /etc/zshrc.
I agree about the EXINIT one. Changing the prompt or $LESS is something
a sysadmin might do, even if you think he shouldn't.
} So you agree in a sense: this fancy ordering is sometimes useful,
} but when it is, other alternatives would work as well.
What I disagree with about that is the "as well." They'd work *also*,
but not *as well*.
} I'm all for a /etc/zshenv or maybe even more init files
Please, not more.
