Maybe you're not familiar with the Apache API.  It's there for a reason,
so that the core doesn't have to contain the kitchen sink.  I'd rather
examine why the API is deficient than add dlopen() to the core.  I'm sure
others will agree.

For one thing, dlopen() doesn't work on win32, so another solution is
needed there... that solution already exists, and is a module (mod_dll).
