Long ago I suggested, and started to implement, a "-I" option. Not sure
if having an option is any better though. As for a search path; we could
take the BB2 approach of searching some particular _relative_ and global
dirs. With the option to add to the search with the above env var. Hence
the need for "proper" installation is reduced.
