NO, its purpose is to allow the user to modify the global configuration 
set in /etc/profile.  All Bash shell configurations should be in 
/etc/bashrc and $HOME/.bashrc.

You do understand that setting the environment variables isn't a shell 
configuration, don't you?

Well DUH!  That is something completely different.  Different shells 
have different script syntax so obviously that is true.

Yes, it is annoying.  Thunderbird screws such things up with rewrap too.
