What's the accepted idiom for calling (provide 'foo-feature)?  I picked up the habit of calling it first in every library I write.  This way two libraries can call functions from each other without causing a circular dependency.

But I had a look through lisp/*.el and everything calls provide last.  Is there some disadvantage to calling it first that I'm not seeing?
