These files are 'eval'ed, so their contents are executed in the context
of the current shell.

A simple test shows that aliases are not exported:

[poc bree:~] alias foo='ls -ld'
[poc bree:~] foo
drwxr-xr-x 236 poc poc 20480 2008-12-01 01:07 .
[poc bree:~] bash
[poc bree:~] foo
bash: foo: command not found

poc
