I don't think there is a situation where you would want to, by default, load in every module in a directory.

Frankly, just because you don't see a reason for it, someone else may have a perfectly valid reason. In fact, I there is at least one good reason to do this: testing that all modules in a directory will load.

Also, as another poster pointed out, this is supported by default in other languages, like Java:

import java.io.*;

Which is a case of Java supporting more laziness than Perl (a case which is quite rare).
