Say, we have a server where we use "userx" to deploy stuff and do some maintenance task. This user is being used by multiple team members. So, if I can not really modify the .bashrc or .zshrc the way I want it.

On the other hand, I am quite impressed by Emacs tramp. It lets me have my own Emacs configuration on my local system.

You can create your own .sabyarc file (writable by you, readable by userx) and source it each time you log in as the user. Or, you can use a group for the maintenance task, so all the users involved can configure their own .rc files.
