In principle one can add more trees to TEXMF variable. But I don't
know yet why multiple trees in TEXMFLOCAL or TEXMFHOME are not
desired, so maybe changing TEXMF is even worse.

MikTeX has a nice GUI to add and remove additional trees.

I believe that gnuplot concatenates TEXMFLOCAL with
"tex/latex/gnuplot" for example, so in case that one has multiple
trees, gnuplot would have problems installing files there, but I
consider that being gnuplot's fault.
