Yeah; was thinking that @require could evaluate after all @load's have 
been completed, very similar to @load x when y.

More relevant, though: I'm kind of worried that @load x when y would 
break logical encapsulation a little bit (since it seems like 'load x 
when y' essentially means that something other than x needs to be aware 
of exactly what x needs to load in order to run).

I guess that's a matter of preference, though.
