I forgot, but I'd also started the thread https://externals.io/message/107967  ("Autoloading functions/consts without a performance impact") 5 months ago, and got sidetracked looking into ways to reduce ambiguity in calls to functions. It might have been a better idea for me to start a straw poll instead of that, but I didn't know how representative initial feedback was, and I'm no longer working on autoloading. Some of the messages might be relevant for the "Discussions" section of an RFC. Thanks, - Tyson
