> The current module system allows installing and uninstalling every single module.
> However, since more and more Maintain functionality is being implemented as a "module", some of this functionality will be vital to maintain working correctly. As useful as the module system is for writing a truly extensible piece of software, as bad the drawback would be if an admin uninstalled core Maintain functionality.
> People can always break stuff willingly, but "standard ways" like "modules.php -u" should not let them do that.
> Therefore, a new class Core_module, extending Module, with no additional methods will be implemented. Module uninstalling and disabling scripts will check if the triggered module is in fact a core module rather than a regular one and refuse removing it.
> By that, Maintain will not provide this means to break itself anymore "out of the box".
