I like it (I'm a big fan of autoconfiguration, possibly too much of a
fan in some cases :)
What happens for systems without native X11 installed? We could
automatically treat them as modular, but then if native X11R7 is later
extracted things would break - unless we recorded some state that the
system had been locked to modular
