Shouldn't be that hard to put the contructor list address into a
link_set - that would make it easy to get them called for 'built in'

Thinks a bit further...
Have each module define a snall structure that contains (say):
- it's name
- the address of a list of modules it depends on
- the address of its constructors
- the address of its destructios

Then you can control the order of initialisers as well.
