Ah not quite what I meant.  I meant the only documentation I could find
about the path was a reference in a header file.  I agree that a header
file doesn't constitute "good documentation," which is why I was asking
if there is any real documentation on the subject... but I guess not.

This might be worth a mention on the ModularizationProposal wiki page or
whatever might be more appropriate.
