I'm not up on the offline stuff yet, but here are some
questions/thoughts. In general, I don't think it would be good for you
to hardcode in a list of things to load, if that is possible. But
again, I might not understand the problem yet.

1) After dojo loads, you can check the dojo._loadedUrls array would
tell you what files have been loaded. You might also want to intercept
dojo.require/platformRequire/requireIf/requreAfterIf calls after
loading in case the application loads new things during the course of
operation. Does that help?

2) Would it help if we had a gears manifest file? I don't know gears
yet or how it works with Dojo offline, so this might be the wrong
question to ask. However, if it would help, perhaps we can see about
generating one automatically on an svn commit, then during a build,
the manifest would be updated with the build output?
