Also a number of the examples given are using .= which should also be 
acceptable and won't interfere with FILESEXTRAPATHS usage in bbappends. 
However the ones that just assign it to a value without base_set_filespath - 
especially when they're covering directories that are already handled by the 
default value of FILESPATH - should be removed.
