Comment (by dnaber-de):

 Hi @rmccue
 thanks for your feedback. Using `__autoload()` as fallback is a good idea,
 I already forgot  about that function but of course, it's the most obvious
 way to polyfill SPL autoloading.

 Currently, we're improving the concept behind the proposal.

 > Firstly, let's make every class that's not always loaded (wp-admin, etc)
 loadable via autoloading. This is probably a large task in itself, as we
 need to switch to one-class-per-file with predictable file naming.

 Sure thing. I think this should go in a separate ticket as this is
 somewhat a separate task. What do you think?
