That would complicate the semantics of `require`, which loads modules
just once per session. Would a different set of extra arguments force
the module to be reloaded?

If you want to pass extra arguments to a module, just write your module as:

	private code
	return function (...)
		code to be run when required

and use

	function xrequire(m,...)
		return require(m)(...)
