Well I must confess that I haven't even started to think about this properly, 
but one problem here is that the modules would have to be re-inserted every 
boot (given that most CD's are write-only).

As we do not appear to have any modules yet, it is not something that I have 
any experience of.  The stuff I am developing is hacked into the GUI under 
the VPN heading, and so I haven't played with the module interface yet.

Once I have it working correctly (I am now 90% there)*
I will play with the module interface.


* 90% there is an old software engineering remark meaning: 'we have consumed 
90% of the allocated time budget, but the damn thing still doesn't work'!
