I was thinking of using a crontab entry to do that and run that every 5
minutes or so. The downside of the `rmmod -a' crontab that the kernel
documentation suggests is that modules that were not auto-loaded are
also unloaded. That can break systems, so I will not add the crontab to
the modutils package.
