Actually, it is intended both to set the global search path (aka
classpath, aka [declare -stdpath]), but it also allows you to query
the global search path. [import] will allow querying.
That's the intention at least. I haven't looked at it in a bit, so
they do not fully live up to those claims yet. I think I was waiting
for somethings from Miller to settle before taking it up again.
About putting the [declare] object first, I haven't figured that part
out yet. Plus the [declare] ordering was limited/buggy last I
checked (a few months ago?)
