This looks interesting.
Does this change the search paths for any file?

Here is the last point I would like to solve:
I have modified a sty file (from beamer) that is included somewhere is the
For the moment, this sty file is in the main directory, so that it is called
correctly.
I would like to put it in a specific subfolder (with other personnal sty
files I have managed to put there, thanks to the import package).
But in this subfolder it will not be loaded because tex will not try to find
it there...
I could have put it in my texmf folder, but then it would interfere with
other projects, which I don't want.
So, a good solution would to be tell tex, as a per project solution, to add
a specific subfolder in the TEXINPUTS variable.

In your code, I see a "\input at path" macro. I don't know what it does... I
will search the Internet. Maybe your code can be used to solve my "problem".

Thanks a lot
Thierry
