    I noticed quite a few non-interactive functions and defvars have had 
    autoload cookies added lately. I can see the point of autoload cookies 
    for interactive functions, and maybe some defcustoms, but I am not sure 
    of the value of bloating loaddefs.el by autoloading non-interactive 

We make non-interactive functions autoloadable to make it easy to call
them.  We make variables preloaded so that programs can set them more

     I had some problems with bootstrapping and parse-time-string 
    last night, which I didn't have time to debug fully, but I think it 
    might be caused by the removal of a require for parse-time and addition 
    of an autoload cookie instead.

If that is the case, I suspect that the code is setting some variable
in the file parse-time.
