Yes, that would be really nice!

Well, that could be coded in the scripts, but feel free to add it if you'd

Already done in ~/.bashrc.. Am I missing something?

That is really nice :) and usefull!
So the ~/.config/autostart/ could be instead ~/.config/actions/, for
instance, and inside it you could get:
startup/ --startup scripts
shutdown/ --shutdown scripts
other/ --mounted media, other events, etc
of course, it would be more interesting if these dirs were chosen by the
user, and there was a file in ~/.config/actions/ where the specific events
were mapped to specific scripts/dirs and so..
This is getting interesting! :D
