Well yes, the option would be on the autoload of the bootstrap function,

	autoload -P /some/hard/path/foo

where "foo" in turn calls "autoload bar" would cause the autoload of bar
to inherit /some/hard/path from foo.

Indeed not.

("-P" chosen for example only and entirely without reference to whether it
conflicts with some other use of -P in typeset/functions/etc.)
