I don't like the idea of doing ducking in a module called
"module-role-cork". Consolidating the code of the modules makes sense,
but I'd prefer to do that by adding a library that both modules can use.
Replacing the two modules with a single module is unfortunately not
feasible, because (at least in my opinion) we should maintain
compatibility with old configuration files.
