I just realized, you appear to be looking for a way to define a "source path" 
to search for the file.

PATH=/foo:/bar:/etc source file


PATH=$SOURCEPATH source file

I know it's not as "clean" as "include file", but it's certainly more clear as 
to what it does.  And clarity is more important, IMO.  Also, it conveniently 
also doesn't require insane hacks.
