It's generally not the case that dmg-based installers on OS X modify your PATH. There's a very "don't do unexpected things to user's environments" ethos to installer packages on OS X.

comment How do I install and run MySQL?
If you can't install Homebrew on a machine you won't have sufficient permissions to install a pkg-based application and run MySQL as a daemon, so your point is moot. In any case, you've made your point and posted your answer. Your dislike of Homebrew for managing packages is noted.

comment How to install tofrodos in Yosemite via Homebrew?
The commands are related -- they use a shared library to do OS line ending translation on files. It's very common to package multiple, related commands in to a package like this -- has been as long as I've been a *nix user now...some 25 years now. But really, if you have a problem with what tofrodos contains, you're welcome to submit a patch that breaks the package up: thefreecountry.com/tofrodos

comment Editing an Mailbox configuration file
On hold pending additional information. It sounds like you're corrupting the settings file when you edit it; making invalid edits. What's the app, what edits are you trying to make to the file? The question really appears to be more about how you make valid file edits for this application and less about ST2.
