Good point. inc-files should definitely better be in root directory.
(BTW: there is a scanner setting "include_folders" where multiple
include directories can be specified, but it should not be used to
add 2013/ etc.)

Also NVTs that are used as dependency across years should better
stay in root directory. BTW: We don't need to use a path "../xyz.nasl"
because the root dir is searched automatically.

Will add this to the CR.
