Giving modules the ability to communicate features seriously complicates
this enhancement.

It seems it would require us to assign 'classes' to modules.
How do we deal with precedence of duplicate commands?

Adding a uchar to the module structure would accomplish what
I propose, and would probably be needed for an init routine
that would accomplish what RST is suggesting.
