Yes, this should not a candidate for 24.1.

I think it's a sufficiently general problem that we might want to
provide some special support for a good solution (tho again, I doubt
there's something simple&safe enough to be a candidate for 24.1).

E.g. we could add to bytecomp.el the ability to force `require' to
reload a package if it's not already loaded from the file that
locate-library returns.
