I was also thinking about this. I am afraid Aaron's ideas #2 and #3 don't
take care of that, since they build the blacklist in rc.sysinit, right?

Do you suggest reverting to the previous load-modules.sh then, which built
the blacklist every time? It doesn't sound very efficient, but how is it
possible to get the behavior you are describing otherwise?
