The main problem with that approach is that you can't choose what is to
be modules and what is to be built-in.

Yes, I do -hate- modules as much as you do.

However, I have for example that little ARM based NAS box (DNS-323 from
Belkin) and the firmware on that thing won't let me boot a kernel that
is more than about 1.5M, tho I have about 6M of flash to put an
initramfs with modules in it.

Maybe we could extend select that way. IE. A way to say that a given
option should be y or m by default, for example, while the user can
still change it to be the other way around ?

Cheers,
Ben.
