Currently :m doesn't load any modules, it just alters the "context" (what's
in scope at the prompt), and fails if you ask for a module that isn't
loaded. It would make sense for :m +M to behave like :add if M wasn't
loaded, though. And perhaps :add *M or :load *M should ignore compiled
code for M - that's another option.
