We are looking at two different ways to extract type information from 
extension modules:  Static analysis and loading in introspecting the 
module in a separate process space.  We've traditionally tried to 
avoid the latter as a design principle, to avoid unwanted side effects 
when modules do real work at the top level and so that auto-completion 
works with flawed or unloadable code.  But it may be we need to resort 
to it to do extension modules well.

As usual, I can't give any promises as to time frame but we do view 
this as pretty important.
