I don't understand the need for this separation, and, if it is needed, why

eval `virc cat fooscript`

isn't a much easier and maintainable way of doing it.  as-is, the
separation is imaginary anyway because your virc relies upon the variable
namespace separation to do the split into .d files.  

It looks like I need to shut up until I've read the thread.  Thanks for
your clarifications.
