umm. no. it's a core enhancement.

this will only work cleanly if you modify the core bootstrap and  
module.inc functions such as module_list etc.
The modifications aren't that huge either. Maybe 20 lines of code or  
so (guesstimate) to accomplish this.

It's implausible to change how profiles work for the drupal 6  
timeline. We can't require an additional module
to alter the module workflow enough to make this all run (we'd end up  
sitting with the same situation as the
_support module now).
