A detail: 'active' is a deprecated field, the field which should be
set to False here is 'installable'.

Another possibility that we should seriously consider is the one
mentioned by Graeme: to move modules in individual repos. If we are to
play with git filter-branch and co, it wouldn't be a big difference to
push the modules in another repository (some other problems to
overcome but nothing insurmountable I think).
