Note this would most likely crash and burn under Windows too. It's not
a common case at all, and you really need to know what you are doing
to make this work. And if you know enough to do it, adding explicit
paths in the loadorder config shouldn't be a big problem for
you. Sure, if we can make it easier we should (and I believe the
wildcards should help), but we should not sacrifice functionality for
such exotic cases.
