More to the point, until the module versioning and dependency stuff hits
the tree, KLD modules remain a useful novelty.  I wouldn't consider them
to be at all appropriate for production systems right now.  The only
reliable way to insure that a given module works with a given kernel is to
build them from the same source tree at the same time. </strong opinion>
