How can we improve Azure Cloud Shell?

make bash .profile file work in Cloud Shell

Although there is a .profile file in a user's home directory in bash Cloud Shell, I could not find any evidence that it gets executed when starting a Cloud Shell session. It is possible to work around this with a hack in the .bashrc and an extra environment variable, but the behavior of bash startup scripts in bash Cloud Shell should be well-defined and documented.
