Could we extend nginx by our own misc type modules

At first, I must apologize that I use trac to commit patch, the reason is that I can not config hg's email and patchbomb successfully.

In my practice I wrote some special modules which are not http or stream type(they do not work with http or tcp/udp). The core type is too 'heavy', the misc type is a more suitable choice.

But at this time Nginx do not support foreign users to write their own misc modules.

So I hope Nginx team could consider this request and let Nginx became more extendable.

The attachment is a reference implement, it can work but may not be the best solution.

There are no real differences between MISC and CORE modules except naming - the MISC type is used for modules in the misc/ directory. There should be no reasons to use MISC in 3rd party modules.
