No, I don't think that we wouldn't need a autoload thing, but I just
seen to many people, which doesn't even know the very basics, playing
around with stuff in highly under development and then they are doomed
to fail. autoload wouldn't help in that situation, but it also
wouldn't to any harm, its just because the problem is the user
itself. But at last, just forgot what I said its not important, its
more a philosophical issue.
