I'd rather see us decouple "loading" of modules from "enabling" of
modules, and then come up with a consistent way to do both. That way
static modules are just implicitly loaded, DSOs can be optionally
loaded with LoadModule, and it takes something else entirely to
enable or disable*.

*(The default could be to enable or disable, but a consistent way to
  override this at start-time would make it really clear to an admin
  how they can control this.)
