No plan would be upset. The original idea was that require 'pl' was
the lazy way to write scripts; all the modules are available, but
only _loaded_ when used. It is perfectly possible for the return to
be that table of contents, and lazy loading could happen less
As for local utils = require 'pl.utils', I've been doing that since
the days of the original 'module considered harmful' discussions and
anyone writing _modules_ using PL should prefer that style, since no
magic is used.
