Ah, now I understand your question, sorry for being dense before.
Through a bit of hackery, Meroon macros are available whether loaded or
included. See meroon.gsc for the gory details. (Basically, each
meroon-macro definition in a file A.scm [which is available to use in
other definitions in A.scm] is also "eval"-ed, which makes it available
to use in definitions in other files after A.scm or A.o1 is
I would recommend you just "include" or "load" each file with Meroon
class/generic/method definitions once.
