First, it was just an example of how we handle the login script concern. 

That said, Uhmm, nope, csh.  I understand the criticisms, its just that we have alot of things that were originally written using csh, so ... call it legacy.  We have codes/scripts/etc written in virtually every 'flavor of the month' that has existed.  Personally, I like sh or bash, but run often run in tcsh since it is more compatible with alot of the environments I find myself in.
