Could you just preload the module by calling 'require' yourself

you've fiddled with it.

Yes and that is what I am doing right now, but I am trying to make this a generic app that has a limited list of dependencies. This way not everybody will have to have the module to use this application. It is distributed with an application at work. It is a good function though so I like the name and it will fix perfectly into the way the application is written.

Other thoughts?

Can I force the overwrite to happen after 'loadfile()' is called?
