Yes I see that this could be usefull sometimes. I will add an option in the
next release, so you can tell Embperl that it will behave the way you need
it. Unless the next beta is release just use your zero filesize aproach.

It is searched in the same way as all other files. The best is to put it in
the same directory as your base.epl file
