Doesn't require use `load' internally?

(setq load-source-file-function 'ignore)
(require 'something-not-yet-compiled)

is enough to prevent loading.


I think the problem is that `load' doesn't look at
`load-source-file-function' if it finds a byte-compiled file.  So there's
no chance to automatically re-compile an outdated file.

I don't think there's a way around that.
