The limitation there is, you still have to load all the modules to  
find out what the dependencies are.
And then you can still have namespace conflicts (you should never  
have more than one theme loaded at the same time. and themes should  
have metadata too)

Could you explain why you have never been a fan of metadata files?  
I've been aware of this dislike of yours, since the first version of  
and while I relented then, I believe it's important now that we  
implement them.
