I agree. If I understand what's being proposed, I think it should be
off by default, if we have it.  Presuming what's being proposed is an
autoloader such that whenever you reference a symbol that's in a
module somewhere that's not loaded, the module gets loaded
automatically.  That seems like a bad idea, and likely to mask bugs.
