This would just add fluff to the build system. The overall
requirements of the runtime don't change at all if some assemblies
could be removed by configuration.

Distributions won't need it because they are packaging binaries
taken from a full installation, while people like you could simply
remove the assemblies/tools they don't need.

Removing assemblies at configure time is even less useful
than manually removing assemblies because every change of
the modularity would require a full rebuild. This is a big
waste of time and resources for almost no use.
