It's also something I run into when developing a large application
(with a deep heirarchy) and want to check that one individual module
loads on its own. I have ../.. in my search path already to mitigate
this, so without that even more cpphs modules would have failed.
However, for this example of cpphs, it doesn't really matter much.
