David, just be careful with an idea to build sound as a module.
This is a boot time/RAM tradeoff:

Sound used to be a module, and, it took precious time to load it during 
boot. So we made it builtin. And i'm sure most users have sound loaded 
anyway, so there will be no gain in RAM usage, just lose of precious boot 

I would agree to move some other (not commonly used) modules, like vfat to 
modules and separate ipks, if it's not the case already.
