    As I understand it, when importing a script module from a directory that is not included in $ENV:PSModulePath, the module manifest is bypassed. Is there a way I can Import-Module C:\temp\foo\foo.psm1 without ignoring C:\temp\foo\foo.psd1?

    If you give Import-Module a full path to the psm1 file, then that's what gets imported. If you give it a path to a folder, then it'll search with the usual order (psd1 first).

    Import-Module C:\temp\foo
