comment Why can't an `Import[]` change $Path?
There's no way to ninja out of a block, right?

comment Why can't an `Import[]` change $Path?
I'm creating and deleting files and directories in my Imported file, so if it's a security measure it's impressively poorly designed. It feels more like there's some "specialness" to the context that the Import is being evaluated in.

comment How to programmatically replace an expression in a .m file
@RolfMertig, good point about init.m being a possible source of confusion. But what do you mean by non-portable? It seems to me that an init.m file is exactly as portable as its author makes it.

comment How to programmatically replace an expression in a .m file
That'd be fine if we were talking about a script to update just my carefully controlled init.m. But I'd like my init munger to also work with somebody else's pre-existing init.m without them having to rewrite it.
