How to include one citrus grammar in another... #12

Is it possible to include one Citrus grammar in another, if the grammar exists in a separate file? I cannot seem to "require" the citrus file. If two grammars are in the same file, I can successfully include one in the other. But if I want to store one in a different file, is it possible to somehow require it?

For now I've been using a combination of Module#autoload and Citrus.load to accomplish this. For example, in one file I'll declare my top level module with an autoload instruction for each segment of the grammar that I want to load. Then, in the autoloaded file I just use Citrus.load to actually load that module from a .citrus file somewhere, usually in the same directory but with a different suffix.

I realize that this is a bit hacky and is sort of a roundabout solution. Perhaps we could hijack require when used in a .citrus file. First, try the normal Kernel#require but rescue a LoadError and try to use Citrus.load. What do you think? Any other ideas?

I've added the ability for Citrus files to require one another in this commit. Closing this issue.
