same thing for help libs, instr etc.
i would just be concerned with having a very large list of paths
that Help and Instr must search through.
Help especially should load all the paths when it *initClass, then
lookup is fast after that. I hate that rolling ball while it
searches. If I add a new file (rare) then I just hit recompile.
downside : slower startup time
it could do it on the first usage of Help / Instr. etc.
Something like this would be good, as it is very slow now with all
the extension directories. It might be worth doing something with
SearchKit, as that's already keeping a database.
That said, the current implementation is still searching the whole
tree for each possible extension, which needless to say, sucks. I'll
take a look at fixing it.
