i will say one thing... NOTHING... but NOTHINg will be a configure time
option (unless there is no other way). EVERYTHING is runtime. i will
not abid by soe inaries having an ability and some not having it. if
you have versin <blah> of e then it is capable ALWAYS of a known set o
things - you may choose to not use the feature (inwhich case it just
lies dormant) or you may actively turn it off... but you will always
never have to go compile e again to get a feature or disable it.
