Dynamic module and obtaining http core module configuration

I am trying to make a dynamic nginx module. After reading all the tutorials
and stuff available I set up a working minimal sample and started hooking
up my http handlers. The question that arose is, in the static modules the
http module configuration is retrieved like this (in a lets say
postconfiguration handler):

static ngx_int_t postconfiguration_handler(ngx_conf_t* cf)
ngx_http_core_main_conf_t* nginx_http_configuration =

If I'm not overlooking something this will not work (and in my case does
not) with a dynamic module
the ngx_http_core_module.ctx_index is not initialized since the initialized
version of ngx_http_core_module lives inside nginx.exe (where it is set by
ngx_count_modules) and my dll does not see that. If could run through the
module list and find what I need, but I just wanted to know if there is a
better solution already in place.
