No. The release process would be like for the httpd.
We have core and we have core modules. The release depends
on all core modules, but you can build core without
modules. Take for example the httpd and mod_ssl.
mod_ssl depends on OpenSSL, but the httpd itself does not,
although its dependent on the mod_ssl, rely on mod_ssl.

The point is to have the modular build system, that
does not depend on protocol specific libs.
