It works to call LOAD recursively, so you can have one file that consists
of a lot of things of the form
(or (fboundp 'foo) (load "nis;foo"))
which check whether a certain file is loaded and if not load it.
The only case where autoload would be useful is if there are a lot
of things you want around but don't want to load because you aren't
likely to use them except occasionally. We may put in autoload in
the next system or the one after that for the sake of this, it's not
terribly hard, but involves some improvements to the condition mechanism.
