There's a general expectation that you can compile modules
using apxs, without having to recompile the core.  So long
as the fatal-exception hook is a compile-time option,
your modules break that expectation.

If your modules go into trunk, that puts them on track for
future release versions where they'll be exposed to users
who can't be expected to recompile the core.

OK, come to think of it, we do have precedents, like LDAP
modules requiring the optional support in APR.  But at
least that's moving in the right direction with APR
modularisation.  Ho, hum.
