Loadable runtime modules?

I much prefer Nginx over Apache, and would use it as our primary HTTP server
at my place of work (as I already do for my personal sites), but the thing
that limits my willingness to do this is the fact that one must recompile
Nginx to turn on/off modules. This can get tedious and problematic when you
have multiple 3rd party modules like Phusion Passenger that you need to
compile into Nginx, especially when those modules need to be updated with a
new version.

Are there any plans to support loadable modules at runtime like Apache? I
figure this has probably already been discussed, in which case I'd
appreciate links to those discussions.
