    What is the situation re persistent data?

    There was one attempt to provide a built-in database service for a
    module
    to write items at unload time and reload at load time. Or one can
    consider
    post-install and pre-remove for doing this but we do not have a standard
    recommened way for this. We probably need a standard
    /proc/module/<module_name>/*
    format that one can read/write to maintain continuity of service for
    the module.

    I assume here that I do want the module to be unloaded/loaded and
    not lose any settings (that maybe my post-install used, or my
    application)
    thus allowing transparent unload/reload, so idle-unloads carry far
    less risk.
