Jeremy, feel free to fix its English as you wish without asking me, as it 
doesn't change the functional sense you don't need my acknowledgement 
I can incorporate into next patch if you send.

I think we need it packaged, there are people (I know at least 1) who 
wants to try it but won't take the effort when it needs a recompile.
Due to my experience, adding the configure option 
"--with-shared-modules=..." already necessary to have it built.

I'm fine with the warning addition (is level 0 enough?).

Volker, can I prepare a next patch with a warning?
