speaking of which, I think it would be a good idea to rule out that
require can affect other require statements in the base specification.
this is stated explicitly in the variables draft, but the same thing
will be a potential ambiguity with character escapes, e.g.,

 require "quotes";
 require "r\x65gex";

This seems very sane, safe, and backwards compatible.
