Thanks, Chong. I'm surprised you were the only one who replied. Since
both you and the Gnus project leaned towards a scoped variable, I took
that approach and checked in image-load-path-for-library just now.

Reiner, if you haven't done so already, it would be good to
deprecate/replace calls to mm-image-load-path and possibly
nnheader-find-etc-directory too.
