I'm not in that a hurry. Wallfire will use common modules in the first
place, and then will come such optimisations.
So I'll certainly code it (first the /proc list of modules, then the
syntax versioning) when the time will come if noone else will
have worked on that already.

Yes, I will too. I've done part is my cursus in Bordeaux (during
which I've worked a little bit in the early days of Netfilter with
Rusty :-), so I know the place quite well! :-)
And I'll certainly do a Wallfire presentation there too.
So, yes, we'll meet there. But I'm not sure we'll be able to talk
German together, weil Ich leider seit zehn Jahren nicht mehr
praktizieren konnte und denn habe Ich es ganz verloren. ;-/
