  Definitely, yes. :)
Hi Matthew,
Thanks for your stimulus that made me revise my code.
It no longer contains any current-library-collection-paths calls.
After more accurate reading of the MzScheme Language Manual, I found that a module name consisting of a string only (without a 
keyword like file or lib) does exactly what I want: the relative path of the source code file is prefixed. And it also sees the 
existence of non outdated compiled files. Perfect. My nasty code was the result of trying the same thing with (require (lib x)).
Thanks again, Jos Koot
