No, this isn't sufficient. The problems are:
1) occasionally the sysadmin people at the server farm do stuff
2) sometimes I edit files, and of course the shell doesn't record how
3) the shell history seems erratic! It remembers the session clearly, but if I reboot, for example, and look at the history, it's not what I would
 expect it to be.
