I am extremely pessimistic that we will ever get the loader cleaned up.
I am much more optimistic that we will be able to remove more chunks of
it over time, which will have the side effect of cleaning certain areas
up.  No one's TODO list has "clean up loader" on it, because we've all
got a million other things that need to be done right now.  And until we
get that as an item on someone's list, we're stuck.

See Peter's comment about patches to patches.
