Proposal: Implement a PHP autoloader in WordPress Core

Past discussions
8 years ago, a ticket was created in WordPress, suggesting a PHP autoloader for WordPress Core classes. In that ticket, many things were discussed regarding the concept of adding a PHP autoloader in WordPress. That ticket discusses adding an API to allow plugin developers to register their own classes, it discusses using Composer, as well as other more nuanced topics of implementing an autoloader in WP.
