Sort of -- you can do that with the modules file:


Not everything works as well as you might hope, however.  In particular,
if you do ``update -d'' to pick up new files and directories, you'll
likely get *all* the files in each directory rather than just the ones
selected by the module definition.

This looks more like a mishmash of unrelated stuff than any kind of
coherent project.  Could you be more explicit about exactly what it is
you're trying to do?
