Sometimes the local,pkg,X11R6 scripts shall replace or augment the
standard scripts. In this case it is not sufficient to run then
after the standard scripts completed, instead of you have produce
a new list as soon as local,pkg,X11R6,... comes into existence.

Merging in a new list also has to resolve namespace conflicts. That
probably requires a new feature in rcorder.
