You can use load rather than require. You will need to give a path
to the file and include the extension. Also load is not idempotent
like require (i.e. multiple loads on the same file will actually load
the file multiple times).
And Rake is just plain ruby, so any other exotic technique that works
in Ruby will work with rake too (e.g. explicitly reading and evaling
the file contents).
