[OpenLayers-Dev] @require issue with XHR code

There's a dependency issue with the new XHR code.
If you have A.js that uses say Request.GET, in A.js you will use:
* @requires OpenLayers/Request.js
The thing is that Request.js doesn't include "@require
OpenLayers/Request/XMLHttpRequest.js", so the built file won't include
the XMLHttpRequest code, which is problematic.
Adding "@require OpenLayers/Request/XMLHttpRequest.js" to Request.js
comes up with its own problem: a circular reference. Yes,
XMLHttpRequest.js does include "@require OpenLayers/Request.js". And
if we remove that @require in XMLHttpRequest.js, it doesn't work
either, because XMLHttpRequest.js does require Request.js when its
main anonymous function is executed.
One solution to this entire issue might be use
* @requires OpenLayers/Request/XMLHttpRequest.js
everywhere the Request object is used. But it's a bit confusing.
Any other idea?
