I think the change you mention above is transparent to both the end-user
and thrid-party packages.  It should be immaterial here.  Of course
Achim should correct me if I'm wrong. :)

The (require 'org-install) bit is supposed to be user code, specific for
each installation; it is highly dependent on the load-path.  IMO, the
problem here is the OP[1] has a mixed installation and neither org or
org-toodledo needs any fix.

There are many discussions about mixed installations in the archive and
Worg.  It would be worthwhile if the OP went through this one in
particular: <http://orgmode.org/worg/org-faq.html#mixed-install>.

Hope this helps,


PS: I wish there was a canonical way to diagnose mixed installs. :-|
