Sure, you can put a <nasal> block at the top of a -set.xml file (next
to, not inside, the <sim> block).  Something like this:

  <a10> <!-- Module name.  The aircraft name is a good choice -->
    # Whatever Nasal code you like ...

The bo105 uses slightly different syntax to load an external .nas
file, and you can inspect
http://www.plausible.org/nasal/flightgear.html for more detail.

Actually, it wouldn't be hard to make this the default.  We could set
a "kill engines if empty" flag on the tank for aircraft where we
wanted stricter behavior.
