I heard somewhere that some program called autoconf was good at this.
Never heard of it, personally :)

Yeah. As I see it, there are several ways to do this:

1. deduce the structure name from the filename
2. rename the structure to be the same on all shared modules
3. some sort of meta-information, e.g. a seperate file.

The third option strikes me as undesired, especially if we want to enable
a "drop a module in a directory to add it to Apache" mode, since that
would involve additional files.

Who needs test suites? We all write perfect code... :)
