This is my opinion as well.

Compared to Module::Load, Module::Runtime has a couple of extra 
workarounds for bugs in pre-5.12 perls that can be easily ported if 
deemed acceptable with regards to compatibility. Module::Rutime's 
interface is generally better, but the relevant alternate interfaces 
could be added to Module::Load.

Let's just focus in having one good loader in core, that's less 
maintenance in the long run, and more user-friendly.
