So the eln wouldn't be loaded once it is done compiling, unless you
specify the explicit LOAD parameter?  If this is the case, I think I
agree with you that we should definitely keep the LOAD parameter.

However, perhaps we could make the LOAD parameter a simple boolean in
the user-facing `native-compile-async' function?  I.e., we hide away
`late' for internal use only.

OK, sounds good to me.
