Thanks for creating a JIRA issue about it and adding some patches.  You're 
definitely right about the number of GETs slowing down page loads.  I was 
planning on creating one dojo include per VCL page in the next release, though 
I never created a JIRA issue about it.  I did do some work already, but I like 
how you structured it a little better.
