Sorry DM,  I tried to say that the current mechanism is in the SWORD 
engine.  It is part of SWMgr and is activated if a [Globals] 
AutoInstall= entry exists anywhere in the located SWORD configuration on 
the system.

Granted, it may not be as cool as it should be, but this is another 
topic for another time, I think.

  So, if on startup a "new" module was found that was not
