Add support for simple syntax in mediaWiki.loader (similar to legacy importScript)
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

The list of JavaScript deprecations suggests that importScript is/will be deprecated in favor of mediaWiki.loader functionality. Nonetheless, it doesn't seems to support a nice syntax like importScript( 'Page.js' );

So, it would be interesting to provide support to such a syntax before deprecating the legacy importScript function.
