Is loading molefile plugins from some place other than the VMD plugins
directory something that is currently supported? If so, what is the best
procedure? A couple of us have tried various permutations on `set
auto_path` and `vmd_plugin_scandirectory`-based approaches without any
success so far (with a plugin that loads fine if dropped in the vmd plugins
dir of an install). If those are supported, do things like the directory
structure under the provided path matter? That is, does there need to be an
analogue to the vmd plugins directory or can I just point the directory
containing the .so.
