   But then doesn’t it prevent code reuse?

   I don’t know to what extent this applies to RPX, but for instance, you
   can’t just ‘(use-modules (rpx the-feature-you-want-to-use))’; you end up
   doing ‘(use-modules (rpx))’ and potentially pulling more code than you
   really want.

RPX is a program, not a library.  The modules it uses can be used by other
programs, certainly.  The other RPX-specific functionality should ideally be
split out (librarified) into their own modules for easier code reuse, i agree.
So far, no one has expressed interest, so reality trumps theory for now.
