Was this a conscious change (single path), or did it happen because of how g.extension was programmed.  The documentation for the GRASS startup still shows examples:


grass.py adds both the full GRASS_ADDON_PATH and GRASS_ADDON_PATH/bin and scripts to PATH, which assumes there is only one path in GRASS_ADDON_PATH.  And of course g.extension defaults to GRASS_ADDON_PATH, if set, thus expecting a single path there.

Rather limiting.  Breaks my Mac setup for global and user addons outside the GRASS application folder.
