FYI, I'd actually suggest this approach. I think the number of people that will get confused by variable-and-loading-ordering will be far greater than the number of people trying to figure out why the function isn't doing anything (especially if in the function documentation it says a variable must be set for it to perform any actions). I too immediately tried the new TODO dependencies after the last release announcement and couldn't get it to work... Old habit of performing '(require ...)' ahead of the variable settings. -- "In the bathtub of history the truth is harder to hold than the soap, and much more difficult to find." -- Terry Pratchett
