the basic concept of "modules" are pluggable instruments to extend
something else.

having to compile it in makes it less modular. DSO support would make
package management in distributions seamless.

minor differences in any one single module means you need to recompile
the entire binary for that small change instead of a single .so for
example being changed and the server gracefully reloading.
