[Sidefx-houdini-list] Recursive OTL search paths in h9?

Hey folks,

I used to use HOUDINI_OTL_PATH in h8 to reference an assets directory 
that had nested directories full of .otls, where  the base directory had 
an OPlibraries file #including the subdirectories where the actual .otl 
files lived....

#include "system_otls/OPlibraries"
#include "part_otls/OPlibraries"
#include "shot_otls/OPlibraries"

Now in h9 the HOUDINI_OTL_PATH doesn't seem to be being respected. I try 
the HOUDINI_OTLSCAN_PATH and that will work, but ignores the OPlibraries 
files and doesn't scan recursively. Is there a solution to this that 
doesn't require me to put in all the sub-directories into the scan path?

Am I doing this wrong?
