This is what [gf/find_file] is for. It goes with my policy of allowing 
abstractions to act like externals in whatever situation I encounter. I 
don't apply the policy all of the time, but it has to be more often than I 
see it in other people's externals.

IMHO, one of the most memorable moments of the 1st international 
convention (2004), is the few minutes during which several of us said that 
abstractions should be able to do the same things as externals. However, 
it's hard to reach any kind of consensus, and so, in reality, this idea 
took a long time to germinate and the torch is carried by rather few
