Last time I checked the VM provide the vmPath and the image assumes that
the .sources file right there. It might be nice if a commandline
argument could subvert that somewhat, though it ought to have a new
primitive since the _actual_ vmpath might have some use somewhere.
Shouldn't be too hard to make a way to have it fallback gracefully to
the old way.

Keeping the .sources file alongside the vm is quite a nice approach on
some machines; RiscOS does it very happily since I just leave it in the
aplication directory. I think OSX bundles would probably like that too.
I would have thought that a typical *nix end-user install would be ok
with it as well - have
*.so, whatever]
