Subject: Modules can be built outside Zsh; custom version of autoload builtin

1/ Turned out that it's easy to build Zsh modules away from complete
source. Here is a minimum build setup:


Tested this on OS X. I can load module built with Zsh 5.3.1 features
even on Apple-provided 5.0.8. It's only that lazy binding will fail, if
I call non-existent (in 5.0.8) function. So, plugin creators can
actually provide binary parts, what I'm intending to do too, in Zplugin.
