This would also be a good idea. We could add a load order to the function -
add_js('js file name',load_order), with the higher numbers loading before
the lower numbers.

I think this would all be best in a major version release (ie: 3.0), but
overall it would reduce the calls to the server to load files. If you got 5
plugins loading CSS and JS, that is an additional 10 calls to the server.
Add that to other items, such as theme images, and a page quickly becomes
inflated with requests.
