Just to expand on this a bit - this would be useful to quickly retrieve
information associated with a module that has already been checked when it was
installed, for example - it is a platform module, or is signed by a specific
certificate that gives it special privileges (ex: a JCE provider).
Perhaps the module's context would be an appropriate place to store this type of
information. Any thoughts?
