OMR: prefixing imported files

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.

I do like a mandatory uniform way of doing things, but I agree it needs to be practical not a burden.

Maybe we need to clear the sub-part thing up spec wise, but at the same time make it optional, so if the author puts a comment like 'needs unofficial library x' somewhere. It can be used as is.
