So in the docs (https://help.autodesk.com/view/MAYAUL/2020/ENU/?guid=Maya_SDK_MERGED_Distributing_Maya_Plug_ins_Distributing_Multi_File_Modules_html) it discusses packaging modules for Maya, but in this it doesn't address whether there's any support for Arnold plugins within Maya modules or how one would go about that.
Is there a way to append to environment variables within mod files? That seems like one potential path to being able to package Arnold plugins in a maya module. If not, is there some other approach or syntax I could use for this?
Same thing applies for mtoa extensions and their configuration.
I've got significant interdependencies between maya tooling and arnold plugins, so I'd like to be able to package them together cleanly, without requiring any non-standard installation steps for users if possible.
