Yes, of course it is possible to do it the other way. Trouble is that
there are other cases when that won't work (for example when one needs
to override a module from ERTS/lib/<some_app> in one's project). So
the solution would be to have a project option as to whether to use
add_patha or add_pathz on the project's ebin directory.

It might take a couple of days to fix it. If you add a bug report, it
will be easier to get notified when the fix is in place.
