I'm +1 on the general idea, but -1 on the implementation strategy used.

Instead of coming up with configure options for selected (apparently problematic) modules, I'd like to see a solution that covers *all* extension modules.

One approach could be to reserve the option prefix --enable-mod-XXX for this kind of configuration, allowing people to specify --disable-mod-zipimport (for example).

Another approach (closer to what we already have) would be to support a *disabled* marker in Modules/Setup (and Modules/Setup.local), so anybody wishing to disable modules could put


into Modules/Setup.local (rather than specifying it on the configure command line).
