I was about to suggest that perhaps a try_umhm_then_request_umh_module() or
whatever should not be a macro -- but instead an actual routine, and we don't
export say the simple form to avoid non-deterministic uses of it from the
start... but the thing is *it'd have to be a macro* given that the *check* for
the module *has to be loose*, just as try_then_request_module()...

*Ugh* gross.

Another reason for me to want an actual deterministic clean proper solution
from the start.
