Ok, well, that's still not hard to do; we just add the bootstrap
directories to each of the lists once we've read the config.

Ah, that's right.  I keep trying to forget about that.

One approach may be to use the import mechanism but not the import
search mechanism for that.  So there's still a .zexp file in the
software, but it's not part of the general import/export support.

So this one doesn't present a problem.  The default list will only
include the Extensions in the INSTANCE_HOME, and configuration will
override that if something else is desired.

That's fine with me.  At least it won't be accessing *your* imports
directory.  ;-)
