Has the idea come up of having a file that maps commands to module names along with the required code to autoload the corresponding module(s) when the corresponding commands are used (something like:

<commandname>:    <modulename>.mod [, <modulename>.mod ...]


multiboot:      multiboot.mod
linux:          linux.mod

(Obviously, we could also have the convention of trying to load <commandname>.mod, but having an explicit mapping would remove the overhead of trying to find a module that doesn't exist, and loading multiple modules may not be needed as well).
