Yes. Perhaps taking the existing classloader interface and splitting it
1) a generic interface (callable by other code);
2) several instances of the generic (like the existing CRUD,
CollectionClass, CurrentUserClass, etc).
Any code wishing to call Jifty::ClassLoader->Registration (or whatever
it's called) would pass in a regex (to match on modulename) and a
coderef (to be called iff the regex fires). That way, the registration
could happen in a BEGIN block but it would only execute if that method
was required during runtime.
The existing Jifty::ClassLoader::INC could store an array of registered
callbacks which would populate the @INC as needed (or a hash, but you
can't use a regex as a hash key so we'd either have to require a string
that could be used as a regex or some tricky array of array/hashes thing).
