Description

When a .cljc file that contains macros is required and aliased in another namespace, macros are not automatically included. In that case the :include-macros flag must be set to true. Since the .cljc file is experienced as a single file one would expect macros to be included just like in Clojure.

David Nolen:

The reason we don't do it automatically already is because it wasn't safe to do so when macro files and runtime files were separate

in the past just because a .clj file and .cljs file had the same name didn't mean anything all - implicitly loading the .clj file was not a good idea.
