Isn't it possible to build it modular and as a runtime option 
(not really switchable during runtime, but at startup-time with a 
start-parameter - see my mail from 2007/2/21), but not as a compile-
time option? 

Perhaps, it's possible to build this with a architecture like 
other modular software packages (for example the Apache Webserver
with his module structure)?
