First, the library.  I'm not sure about the name (`user-load-dirs-load'
sounds terrible) and I've omitted the byte-compilation stuff that was in
Ben Key's code.  It's a full rewrite of his code, which makes copyright
assignments unnecessary so we can speed up the process.

Do we want to support loading byte-compiled files?

Is the messaging too intrusive?

Also I don't trap errors.  I think that's the right approach.  These are
not packages, they are like a part of your .emacs and should be treated
accordingly.  This is also why I'm sort of avoiding the byte compilation
support, although it's pretty easy to add.
