How about if your stuff is already nicely set up and you remove then replug
a device, or remove and swap for an identical replacement part. Most people then
want the configuration preserved.

And guess what the simple modutils solution using an ELF section solves that too
Want to go to default configuration ?

rm /var/run/modules/

or wrap it in a GUI.

[BTW windows gets the USB speaker state management right, seems they store all
the module persistent data in the registry!]
