That's a good description of what I was proposing. Yes it would block
the event loop. Perhaps it could be useful if (say) the module were
available in a local disk cache but not loaded into memory: the cost
of I/O to a disk cache may be reasonable, but not the cost of a
completely new fetch from the network.
