My thought is something along the lines of

options(lazy.load = FALSE)

which would override the setting in the DESCRIPTION file
as though every package had set it as:

LazyLoad: no

I want the ability to patch/search the code by default.
LazyLoad removes this capability. I know there will be a
minor speed hit and accept that in exchange for the above

SIGSIG -- signature too long (core dumped)
