We hung the back off our pinky while loading, pretty easy to do.

That's a good question.

Of the million of Nikon F users, I don't recall them complaining about
load an F on the run.

How did they do it? 

Same for the Contax and Contarex users, and those spools fell out!

And for those of you who condemn film loading a Leica
M -- with its skinny baseplate that you grip with your
teeth and an attached flip-up back door -- consider
loading a Nikon RF, with its removable combined
base/back that is nearly as big as the entire camera.
Where do you put that while carefully threading the
film into the take-up spool, on the run?
