Description : Control when subroutines will be loaded

The "load" pragma allows a module developer to give the application
developer more options with regards to optimize for memory or CPU usage.
The "load" pragma gives more control on the moment when subroutines are
loaded and start taking up memory. This allows the application developer
to optimize for CPU usage (by loading all of a module at compile time
and thus reducing the amount of CPU used during the execution of an
application). Or allow the application developer to optimize for memory
usage, by loading subroutines only when they are actually needed,
thereby however increasing the amount of CPU needed during execution.
