Indeed, that's also something I found out while performing some
experiments related to know how to organise packages.
I think, by the way, that scsh/scheme48 should be "fixed" so that it
chases symbolic links when loading files, and interprets relative file
names relatively to the location of the target of the symbolic link,
and not at the location of the link itself, as it does now.
