This would also make package maintainers' lives' easier...

Note that part of the current "magic" involves appending the loadconfig 
functionality into each of the dirvish scripts.  The nice thing to do would 
be to move all the logic into modules, and reduce the dirvish scripts to 
simple "frontends" (in fact there could be just one real frontend script, the 
others could be symlinks to it (to maintain backward compatibility)).  We'd 
avoid a fair amount of duplication (e.g. loadconfig) and it would make unit 
testing easier.
