if texinputs is bound to \input and \openin, that's true (i'm not sure what 
pdftex has har coded, maybe the sams as dvips); so what we really need is a 
way from within tex to set the search path which is a different game

   in pdftex: \pdfinput [path {...}] file {...}

something to discuss with martin/thanh.
