Currently it just takes the best exlib. We have a few options though:

* We could source *all* suitably named an in path exlibs.

* We could make 'require foo' in foo.exlib require the next foo.exlib.

* We could make it an error.

Note that BUGS_TO etc *aren't* merged currently, so if you set values
in multiple places, the last one wins.
