Me too. But I've implemented relative require for myself. And I still
cant accept need for absolute path when one module deep in file tree
calls neighbor module. It's like calling wife something like
"USA.Denver.Susan.D.Totten" with obvious need to change this name when
your family relocates, not only when you changes wife.
