It seems to me that LazyLoad does something different with respect to packages listed in Depends and/or how it interacts with namespaces.

I'm testing using the Bioconductor package graph and find that if I change SaveImage to LazyLoad I get the following:

Looking at the NAMESPACE for the graph package, it looks like it is missing some imports. I added lines:

Aside: am I correct in my reading of the extension manual that if one uses S4 classes from another package with a namespace, one must import the classes and *also* export them?

Now I see this:

But Ruuid _is_ defined and exported in the Ruuid package.

Is there a known difference in how dependencies and imports are handled with LazyLoad as opposed to SaveImage?
