 It would help to make scripts more modular if we could discover the
 current directory for the script on disk.  This came from when I was
 trying to package a script into a module directory and I wanted to have a
 shell script along with it but I couldn't find the shell script reliably
 because I didn't know where the script was sitting on disk.

 The only major problem I can see with it is if it's possible to make the
 data available within events or if it should only be something for code
 outside of events.  Either way would work fine and in my opinion the
 simpler option should win.

 The current hack around this is to use the bro_script_loaded event to find
 some "unique" file name and discover the path from there.
