Generic Bundling

Just wanted to point out a couple of previous attempts at something similar
to generic bundling and the reactions it got, because so far it hasn't
panned out.

Way back in 2008, it was my one and only real contribution to the whatwg
list before getting a little frustrated and moving on:
http://lists.whatwg.org/htdig.cgi/whatwg-whatwg.org/2008-July/015411.html

Then a year later, Alex Limi independently came up with a very similar
proposal: http://limi.net/articles/resource-packages/
and actually got a version of it working in some branch of firefox:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=529208
And here's a couple of discussions on that proposal:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/mozilla.dev.platform/MXeSYsawUgU
http://lists.whatwg.org/htdig.cgi/whatwg-whatwg.org/2010-August/027582.html

As you can see the resource packages attempt got dropped. Perhaps this
proposal will go through because it is tied to the module loader?

Not sure if this changes anything, carry on.
