Some odd idea on /etc/modules


Unless i did something really wrong ...

Recently i ran into some really stupid issue with a module that did not work
because some additional modules were not loaded. Now i'm wondering if it
would not be a good idea to make something like a "modules.depend" file wich
would automatically load any module needed on top of the original module to
work. This would probably greatly enhance plug-n-play ability of the Debian
distro. Mind you, i'm using Debian on a
whenever-i-get-it-to-work-withoug-hassle basis, so i'm by no means an expert
or even intermediate user. Just trying to add something to something i
appreciate working/learning with.

I'm, by default, not aware of any specification/standard that would stand in
the way of this to work. Or simply because of the idea not being workable at
all. Anyone cares to reply to this ?
