Don't know either, but it definitly would be nice.

What about a special directory?

For my modules i first used $MAPBENDEROOT/http/extensions, 
at the moment i put all in a new directory in 
$MAPBENDEROOT/http/itebo to
keep it separated from the original distribution.

I wanted to use a direcory-order like
but this won't work because of code like

> require_once("../php/mb_validateSession.php");

which require to be only one level down.
