Is there a way to have each module be a package (in pkgsrc) that depends
on the main nginx package?

Given all of this, I don't mean to really object to adding options.  I
just wanted to note that the overall (existing) situation with options
is not that great, and that pkgsrc has a bias against packaging
unreleased code.

This may be a situation where packaging unreleased code makes sense.
