Both mod_dll, mod_so and mod_dld (on which the other two are based) only
recognize LoadModule directives on startup. They get ignored on restart.
It probably wouldn't be too hard to check each LoadModule to see if it was
"new", and add it, and then see if any were "missing", and drop them.


BTW, I think it would be a good idea if the SharedModule configure thing
added a -DSHARED_MODULE to the cc arguments when it builds the module.
That way, modules could behave differently when they are built shared.
