Yup, with the PR. I'd suggest making a custom build with it and testing (please).

Additionally, if iemnet is located in the same folder as the opening patch, it would be chosen first over the global location. Also, you can specifically *ignore* searching beyond the local scope by adding a ./ in the front of the path. :)
