Ah thanks Sam, that is exactly what I needed!
I guess I read the docs too quickly... again.

If others are interested: All the other files that were previously defined
as runtime-paths (without the dynamic require) should remain so when
using dynamic-require. (maybe something like this could be added to the

Strangely, it seems that everythings is launched faster with dynamic-require
