[development] Evil hack: admin/modules without memory restrictions

Hi there!

There are quite a few people who'd like to run a lot of Drupal modules 
and have problems on admin/modules when they hit the php memory limit. 
Moshe pointed out that this has changed/ will change with the install 
files, but I needed something quick and dirty now.

Attached is a patch that will make Drupal

1) read the module files
2) looking for help, init, exit hooks
3) write these hooks to a file
4) include that file
5) delete the file

for all modules found.

The patch makes a few assumptions about how a module file looks like 
(namely coding conventions). A few contrib modules do not respect these 
or they do call some other functions from their help hooks.

These are:


(all taken from contrib HEAD).

I am surprised that the list is so short.

The patch isn't proposed to be included in Drupal, also people who don't 
know PHP should not use it. I will not support it. It is intended to be 
run in development setups where you might want to test a lot of modules.
