I would suggest using two separate struct members, rather than one whose
semantics depend on a flag.  It'd be too easy to forget to check the
flag in some (existing or future) location.


struct shfunc {
    char *filename1;             /* Name of file located in */
    char *filename2;             /* Name of file to autoload from */

We could also put these two members in a union{} if they are mutually
exclusive (if at least one of them is NULL at all times).
