Yup. It's almost working though...

This is *why* the loadable modules were disabled. That and there isn't
any really good reason to make them modular; they don't have a huge
relocation cost, and it's the same disk space in the end analysis.

Please feel free to get it working again if you like though; it
shouldn't be that hard.
