I do not believe we want to enable all modules by default in the
monolithic case.  Take the case of a sysadmin who reads about a security
whole in Apache.  They take a quick look at their config, and see no
mention of the module mentioned in the report.  They believe they are safe
at this point.  If that module is actually compiled statically in all
cases, then they may not be safe, but they may never know that.
