The modules live in directory, and you enumerate the directory looking, loading each one that's there.

I'd like to see this too...

I wonder if it makes sense to adapt netstat to this model?
Or one slightly more complex, that deals with both families
(-f inet) and protocols (-p tcp)?

I'd almost suggest that the family blob that is delivered contains
interfaces for both ifconfig and netstat, but that might be going
just a bit too far.

I don't think there are any other networking commands that
come to mind as benefitting from this style of backend?
