Right, that's the next topic, which modules to load by default and with 
which configuration.

I hope we won't have to do to much work on the configuration topic 
(discussion might be hard like the ongoing deflate discussion shows), 
but instead will come to an easier conclusion about a core module set we 
want loaded by default. I expect most of those core modules already have 
an acceptable configuration in the current config.

So after waiting a bit for more feedback on the general direction we can 
proceed with agreeing on a "most" list, a "minimal" list and which of 
those should be loaded by default.
