I think that is a good idea. And thanks for your information.

Maybe there should also be a warning somewhere that one must ensure that a module is loaded before making local bindings of variables defined in that module. I just fixed a bug in wdired where the following happened: A custom variable in dired-aux was bound locally just before the call of an autoloading function from dired-aux. The result was that the custom variable was left void if dired-aux was loaded at that point. That caused dired renaming to malfunction afterwards.
