Sounds much better. (With the defines, and if it's already the method
in use)


Also, because I'm a lazy 'filename completion victim' type, and
there's nothing that traditionally starts with '/c', whereas '/etc'
already has the 'e' slot, requiring two keys to complete 'emul' or
'etc'. Hmm, maybe that's not such a rational reason after all :) Still...
