My first attempt did exactly that, but I ran into some problems with it.
IIRC, I had to worry about paths for transitive dependencies, which made
it really hard to get working (and would make it really hard to
maintain).  This patch was take two.  :)  It’s a little less specific
but much easier to work with.

Good to hear.  Maybe they’re not so bad.

I still need to take another look at this, but I’m not sure when I’ll
get the chance.  I’ll try to carve out some time soon.  Thanks again to
you for the patches.  :)
