Linux Journal ran an article a few months ago saying that excessive use of
modules can be a small waste of RAM. Something about modules allocating
memory in 4kb a 1kb module wastes 3kb that wouldn't be wasted
if it was compiled in instead. Except for very low memory systems, this
is probably insignificant.
