The question here would be whether LL-analyzers have to be linked 
dynamically. Another option would be to require users to build Zeek if 
they need additional LL-analyzers. The analyzers would still be modular 
but using some meta programming one might be able to generate efficient 
dispatching code at compile-time. If the focus is on performance we 
could benchmark both approaches and decide based on the results.
