No, we're trying to avoid the path having a colon if it only has 1
component. Look at the ganglia-binaries.sh, for example.

Yes, like Oscar's switcher program, except switcher *does* put the apps
in your execution path.

Anyway, here's a chunk from /opt/BioBrew/modulefiles/wise/2.2.0:

prepend-path    PATH            /opt/BioBrew/wise/2.2.0/bin
prepend-path    WISECONFIGDIR   /opt/BioBrew/wise/2.2.0/wisecfg

It looks to me like it's trying to put wise on my path, I just don't
know what program is supposed to be reading these modulefiles.
