thats not what I mean.. what I want is something like

if (function_present(foo))
   x = foo();
   x = SAFE_VALUE;

use x somehow;

so we don't have to have all modules loaded etc. the same could be done
for some syscalls, imagine

   if (function_present(foo))
      return foo(params);
      return ENOSYS;

I like this better then loading all possible modules.
