dojo loader leaves source code in closure

in dojo.js around line 313, to following code is used to load module source:-

var eval_ =

use the function constructor so our eval is scoped close to (but not in) in the global space with minimal pollution new Function('return eval(arguments[0]);');

When the closures are examined with a method of a module (e.g. in postCreate) the highest level closure (the one just above global) contains a reference to arguments passed to eval with element 0 being a copy of the source code of the module.

The following code removes the source code from the closure after it has been eval'd

new Function('var module = eval(arguments[0]); delete arguments[0]; return module;');

leaving the arguments array referenced, but with and undefined [0] argument, and a reference to the module itself.
