OK, if I read this correctly, the suggestion of a MODULE_SUPPORT tag
makes a lot of sense. Although, one could (mis)use the MODULE_AUTHOR for
it.

Given the sloppyness/lazyness of people/programmes in general, use of
MODULE_LICENSE, MODULE_AUTHOR and MODULE_DESCRIPTION should be enforced
at compile time.
