incremental static module addition to kernel

How about letting the end system administrator add modules statically.
Make a utility program which uncompresses a kernel, incrementally adds
(loads, as /bin/ld) a list of modules, then re-compresses the modified
kernel.  The original kernel needs a compiled-in ["meta-"]module
to provide hooks for initialization of the added modules.
