RFC: Feasibility of a "dynamic module loader" built in to nginx?

I was thinking about this about two weeks, but (as Maxim already pointed 
out) currently there is no ABI, which means that you would need to build 
modules against your target nginx version on your target operating system.

This renders this idea viable only for 3 use cases that I can think of right 
1) operating system's pre-compiled binary packages,
2) corporate environments / clusters with staging server(s),
3) closed-source modules.

Having this probably wouldn't hurt, but it won't be useful for as many 
people as you would hope to.
