Would something like this work (in your main .emacs file)?

(add-hook 'find-file-hook
          (function (lambda ()
                            ; Logic for loading directory-specific
                            ; .emacs file goes here
                            )))

You'd probably need to define a directory-local variable in order to
check if you've already loaded the current directory's config this
session.  Also, don't forget that there is a security risk associated
with blindly running elisp code from anywhere on your disk; consider
putting a y-or-n-p in there somewhere.
