I'm not sure what you mean by "messing up" your configuration.

How would it mess your configuration?

Do you have plenty of conflicting .asd's there that are going to
shadow those you like and each other?

Or are you expecting many seconds of scanning through deep directory
structures that may or may not contain .asd files?

Because adding them to the list is otherwise a NOP if the directories
don't exist or don't contain .asd files.
