If I have understood Marcus' code correctly, the modules has to be listed
in a special order (defined by enum wortel_module_type in wortel.h).

When it comes to what information should be exchanged between the servers
and wortel, I think only Marcus has a rough idea.  Of course the task-
server needs a cap id for its primary container, and the physmem server
needs a cap id for its address space.  More than that I can not say.

Maybe a server should only use wortel as a proxy, sending it a message
that says "Hi, send this to the task-server" or "Here's a set of pairs,
where each pair is <server, cap-id>, please pass them along." (where server
can be identifier by the wortel_module_type enum, or similar.)
