So with the current implementation, there are conditional module loaders and unconditional module loaders.  Do we really want to make all module loading conditional?  I'm fine with that, but are there reasons to keep the current conditional/unconditional behavior?  If so we can still keep that functionality, but implement it similar to this patch.
