I think Andrew is still working on a way to disable modules from the command
line somehow. (I think moving setup.py to setup.py.in, and using autoconf
--options would be easiest on both developer and user, but that's just me.)
I also think everyone agrees with you that a module that can't be build
shouldn't stop the entire process in the final release (and possibly the
betas) but that it's definately a good way to debug setup.py in the alphas.
