`:load *` and `:add *` misbehave in presence of `-fobject-code`
The documentation states for the
Normally pre-compiled code for a module will be loaded if available, or otherwise the module will be compiled to byte-code. Using the
*prefix forces a module to be loaded as byte-code.
However, this seems to be ignored when
-fobject-code has been enabled. In that case, the compiled code is always used, regardless of whether the
*-form is used.
-fobject-code enabled is very useful for large projects as it cuts down loading times, whereas being able to use the
*-forms on individual modules from the target set allows for being inside the module context, which is very useful for integration with Emacs (and IDEs), or for being able to set breakpoints.
