Steffan, you aren't considering the structure of httpd(!)  Loading three
dozen modules and several libraries, each with embedded Clib functions is
quite sub-optimal ;-)  For a monolithic program, I agree with your assessment.

We are talking about maximum flexibility for distribution purposes, only.
