TTN: Have a look at

Basically we support server modules.  But we do not provide any in the
base package.  Each server is seperated in its own directory.  That is why
it would be possible to extract a builtin server to make it a loadable
server module.  You would need to:

 * write a new (could be generated from the existing)
 * declare some $(SERVER)_API macros (__declspec() issue) for a single
   symbol (the servertype structure)
