This is indeed a very confusing thread because we're talking about
requiring match but also requiring require, and while most "it"s refer
to a "require", some are to the former kind and some to the latter

Of course, what I'm trying to say is completely clear in my head, so
if you didn't understand it, it must be your fault. (-:
