In my browser, searching the Guile Reference Manual
( Indices
for GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH ... no hits ... looking up LOAD ...
incidentally noting that there's PRIMITIVE-LOAD which _allegedly_
does the same as LOAD, except for the optional argument ...
wondering ... setting %load-hook as described on that page ...
finding that it _often_ remains silent (V2.0.0!) ... and now
wondering if the %load-hook message is telling me precisely
that a "load from source w/o autocompilation" is taking place -
in which case, PRIMITIVE-LOAD was apparently
the "load-ignoring-cached-go" I'm asking for!

(Meanwhile found GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH on the manpage ;-().

Now, I don't care for %load-hook, but you tell me
what PRIMITIVE-LOAD is _intended_ to do!
