I'm really impressed by the about 1000 pages OSGi specification.  8-)

Modules are only loaded as you import them, so you can make it as "lazy"
as you want.  I don't know if it's possible to unload them again.  But is
code really a memory problem?  I've never thought "OMG memory is getting
low, I wish I could unload a module to get some space."  In my experience
it's always data that eats my RAM.
