    For things like DB support, true.  But other modules don't have any
    dependencies upon the OS - such as the proxy, mod_setenvif,
    mod_mime, mod_alias, mod_acces, mod_rewrite, ...  Those can be
    included in the canonical set.

    If it was you intention to bundle some sort of mod_auth_*db*
    support, AND if the group agrees that binaries should all have the
    same module set, then I guess so.  But why couldn't you leave the
    *db* modules out of your ReliantUnix binary the way others would?
