Is there a way to have the MAXIMA_USERDIR point to more than one
directory?

For instance, I would like to have it point to a default directory
(e.g. %USERPROFILE%\maxima) and also the current working directory.

I can so this in unix with file_search_maxima by appending
  "./###.{mac,lisp}", but I don't know the syntax in WinXP.

Thanks for any ideas?
