Thanks for helping!

Don't both of these methods require a #lang line in the input file? That's
not part of the assembly format, so I want to be able to specify the
language in the main module. Indeed, when I try it with a file with a #lang
line, dynamic-require works; when I remove that line, I get an error about
a missing module declaration (no surprise). I can see an obvious
workaround, namely to slurp the file and prepend a module declaration
before dynamic-requiring it, but that's ugly.

So it seems that in fact what I want is to call something like
dynamic-require with a module object. But I'm not sure what to call or how
to get one of those: read-syntax returns a syntax object, not a module,
while I don't (yet) know how to apply my expander's #%module-begin to it to
obtain a module.

At the technical level, foo.asm is in fact an ordinary Racket module,

Right! That's what I've obviously not fully understood yet.

(Thanks for the side node about moving to Discourse—it's a while since I've
been active on the list!)
