If the problem is trying to inline a sub model with the name "s\xxx.dat", that is asking for trouble. I would expect such a line to direct to LDraw\s or an external neighbor folder s\. No spec says it is supposed to try resolving to a submodel first.

That's pretty much what that discussion was about. I think in your example things would be fixed if you just prefix the same string in front of all subparts aswell and adjust all type one lines of (the also inlined) other referring unofficial files. This should work even for s\ parts because type 1 lines are relative (so s\ or blah-s\ both are valid). This will also l prevent breaking the search order like you indicate.

We've stumbled into a really murky specification area. MPD search is explicitly undefined, so there's no telling what "s\xxx.dat" would resolve to if there's a submodel named s\xxx.dat. Yes, the prefix would essentially force the submodel to be used. But what a pain for someone writing the file.
