      Well, it's always been that way...

      You can setup an autocommand for the ColorScheme event to make changes

      Continuing to find more matching files after the first one has been
      found would require changes in existing files, to avoid loading two
      complete color schemes.  I don't think this is common enough to risk
      breaking something.

      I get around this by having a colorscheme called "mySolarized" or "myOriginalName" and starting by sourcing the original and then changing whatever I want to change. (Usually, setting up user colours on the status line.)

      Hope this helps,
