I suppose my question is best stated as:

	Why do you want to do this?

(I can think of two reasons, offhand... and only one of them is a
'good one' to support this functionality...  8-)

I don't particularly feel comfortable with the 'initpaths' array being
'silently' exported as an interface to the machine-dependent code...
It's just sort of ... hack-ish.
