There is a way to do this if you're willing to separate all the modules.
If you put each module into its own config file, set "max connections"
to 1 in each file, assign each one a unique port, and then start a
separate daemon for each module, you can prevent anyone from connecting
to a module twice.  You do lose the ability to limit the total number of
connections to something less than the total number of modules, however,
and you will need to tell the folks connecting to your system to start
using their assigned port number, but other than that it should work as
you desire.
