    Actually you reimplemented do

    require is basically a do that searches through @INC and accepts module::names.

      ..., poorly: do has no 1 MB limit, do keeps track of the current filename for error messages, lexicals from the enclosing scope are not visible to code executed by do, and in case of relative paths other than './' and '../', do searches @INC and updates %INC.
