It indicates that loading them is hard-coded into the core, there's
nothign the script-level can do about that. But you're right in that
the .init extension can be misleading.

These scripts are still different than the other base/* stuff, which
is loaded from other scripts. I'd like to keep that distinction
somewhow. How about using a prefix, like "init-bare.bro" and

(Let's avoid the term "core", that's already overloaded.)
