Are dots in directory or script names still allowed (and are they 
handled correctly?). E.g., what happens if I have a script


And one more question: for debugging: can we have some functionality 
(e.g., command line argument) that will print all scripts with absolute 
paths in the order they are loaded? This might be handy in cases were 
path / script names are ambiguous or a users is wondering which files 
are loaded exactly.
