I see, so if I understand correctly, units will do what I want if I
use them as a replacement for modules, as everything that uses the
conditional modules will have to be a unit also. Is there continuous
runtime overhead with this approach, or only startup overhead? From
this example it seems that I was wrong in thinking that units were an
expansion-time phenomena.

This does seem like overkill for something which only needs to be a
compilation-time feature. =(
