By API I meant both directions, the module API for registration and
metadata, and the Emacs API that modules can use. So I still think a
call-only API (only in the direction of calling the module) is best for
now, so that .h file is unnecessary.

I agree with the rest of your comments, except that it's not clear when
you'll feel that the module loading is settled enough to merge into the
master branch.  I think the module metadata should be formalized, at
least, so it can be obtained before loading the module.  Aurélien, is
that possible?  And do you have any comments?
