By that argument, most any module out there could be considered
"useful" :)

Assuming that the platform "honors" that.

There is no way we could make a configuration that fullfills all
the requirements out there... I think our direction should be
in making small, pre-built binaries as a courtesy, but not a
requirement. Our focus is the code, not building binaries for
people. If we can also provide a binary that helps out those
who lack the skill and tools to make one themselves, then that's
cool, but, IMO, that doesn't include those who need proxies,
database auth, etc...
