      Well in this case the 'require' will fail because there is no such file
      as A/SubPackageA.pm. But in general you are right, there should be no
      problem in requiring a file that has already been loaded (if I read
      perlfunc correctly!).
      Given this, I am not too sure what SOAP::Lite is really checking for
      when it tests the existence of the symbol table for, in your example,
      module B.
