Dynamic module loading does not have a very high priority for our
business requirements. But we surely love to see it happen.

In our own ngx_lua based web applications, we take advantage of lua
module's dynamic loading support to extend nginx with external .so

Maybe we can do that directly in ngx_lua and lua C modules? ;)

We indeed will look into this ;)

I've just added an ngx_shell module to our roadmap such that nginx can
talk to system pipes in a non-blocking and streaming way. This will
make CLI [1] automation more efficient and more easily, in the
contexts of those web-based system management tools.
