Actually, scratch that.  It's not a bug in fakir; it's fakir being
called unexpectedly.  (Just talked with Nic in #emacs.)  This would
probably happen with any other autoloaded library, because fakir is
mocking (some of) the file functions.

In this particular instance, I think esxml, the library that's causing
pcase to be autoloaded, should explicitly `require' pcase.  For the
general case, I have no idea how to address.
