Hmm ... I think I'd prefer some visual indicator that the script is
special, i.e., it gets loaded when the directory is specified. Having
a consistent name for that would point that out.

The model is that by "@load foo" he gets the full set. If he doesn't
want that, he can still pick his pieces individually ("@load
foo/base.bro; @load foo/ext2.bro").

The @unload may do it too, but I don't like that statement. :)
