Issue status update for http://drupal.org/node/19895
Component: base system
Category: feature requests
Assigned to: moshe weitzman

Attachment: http://drupal.org/files/issues/module_list.patch (1.02 KB)
currently modules can inadvertently load all other modules during the
bootstrap. this is easy to do by calling a node_load() or
module_invoke_all(). this degrades performance for anonymous users when
caching is enabled.
with this patch, the module writer will see an php error like "Call to
undefined function: drupal_set_html_head()" if this is attempted.
basically, unavailable functions are actually reported as unavailable.
this patch is only 1 line long, and probably worthy of 4.6
consideration. If it goes in for 4.7, that would be OK with me too.
in order to test this patch, you could view a cached page as anonymous
when an offending modeule is enabled (e.g. sections.module,
taxonomy_context.module, etc.). I will help fix all these modules after
this patch is accepted.
