Well if any guys can make it happen it's you guys. :) with all your submodules I could see a definite demand for dynamic loading - right now it's not the easiest to be able to take advantage of all of them and cherry pick which ones are useful, not to mention having to recompile nginx each time you want to update even just one of them... I'm confident if there was a way to use your modules easier they'd get used a lot more. I'd probably mess around with some and more people would make recipes including them as they get adopted. I'm sure you know this though :)
