Secondly, the modules support should be configured so that muddleftpd passes a structure of pointers to common functions (like safe_snprintf, config functions, ect) to the module when it is loaded.

Then, the modules use those pointers to access functions within muddleftpd.

1) Can get rid of the -rdynamic switch on gcc, that bloats muddleftpd's executable.
2) Can strip the muddleftpd executable, without killing module functionality.
3) This all means muddleftpd is even more portable.
4) We get to specify only the interface we want modules to access.

1) Slower. Function pointers are slower than dynamic linking.
2) More complex.

Modules should be generalized further, so that authentication modules add new authentication methods, logging modules add new logging methods. All additional modules should be able to be described in one place in the config file, regardless of the type of module
