dynamic synchronous import

And the reason you cannot import a module synchronously is that it would
freeze the entire browser until the http request completes, which could be
several seconds on a slow internet connection.

If you want to import something dynamically you can do it using the API (to
be finalized, I believe):

```js
var moduleName = 'foo';
Loader.import(moduleName).then(function(foo){
  //use foo here
});
```
