Ignore that, it's quite wrong!

However, load doesn't automatically append the .rb:

irb(main):001:0> load "fileutils"
LoadError: no such file to load -- fileutils
         from (irb):1:in `load'
         from (irb):1
irb(main):002:0> load "fileutils.rb"
=> true

That will certainly cause "load 'fox16'" to fail, regardless of the gem 
issue.
