I'd like to. I need to find it first. (Anybody want to point me to it
before I hunt through the archives?) I'd rather not if it isn't
considered stable by the group. The decision will be far easier if you
include it in 1.3b4.

Well, I haven't heard an answer from anyone yet. I looked for an
include-files directive without any luck. I could either do something
in mod_perl (requiring me to learn mod_perl, complicating things
somewhat, and requiring Perl to be installed), or possibly an install
script, which adds LoadModule directives to a config file (really
nasty).

But, now that I think about it, I'm not so sure this is the way to go.
Most of the add-on modules require their own specific directives,
which are generally too site-specific to be configured on by default.
So, it might actually be better to leave the LoadModule lines out,
since the admin will be editing the config files anyway.
