Good, thanks.  And don't come back until it works.

The file is only passed to "load" currently, so having to read it before
loading it would be kind of inconvenient.  I think the "add to load-path
before loading the file" was the only assumption made, and now that
we don't even make that assumption, there shouldn't be any reason to
change any remaining assumption.

This said, there are a few things around <foo>-autoloads.el that could
be changed (mostly, I think it should be merged with <foo>-pkg.el, and
renamed so its name is constant rather than depending on <foo>).
